Project 2474









Since 1962, our building has stood proudly and served as a beacon of Catholic education on Ocean Avenue. While many rigorous academic programs have been introduced and internal renovations completed, the facade of our building has remained unchanged over the last 50 years and is need of a facelift. Project 2474 has two phases.



Phase I

  • Blue ceramic tiles will be resurfaced to a bronze hue and reaffixed for safety purposes
  • Security enhancements including:
    • Front entrance doors will be replaced and equipped with electronic release and video access control system
    • Lighting at both entrances replaced with high efficiency lighting.
  • All metal fascia will be cleaned and polished
  • Our landmark cross on the building facade will be polished, refurbished, and rewired with LED lighting













Phase II

  • Renovated public restrooms on the cafeteria level
    • Current women's restroom will be completely renovated
  • Current copy room and storage area to be converted to a men's restroom
  • Current men’s restroom will become a faculty restroom facility
  • Renovations include demolition, replacement of original plumbing, rewiring of all electric, and installation of “green” cost-effective, sensor-operated sinks & fixtures.


How will the Challenge Work?

The Class of 1970, on the occasion of its 45th reunion, wanted to make a significant contribution to the school as symbol of gratitude and longevity. As the scope of desired work was proposed it became more evident that these repairs required more support than just the Class of 1970. The Class of 1965, wanting to make a gift in honor of its 50th reunion joined in to raise the necessary seed money and challenge the remaining classes to work together to raise the $250,000 needed to complete the renovations. View our challenge page to see each classes’ progress. The “winning” classes will be honored with an engraved brick to be part of the permanent renovations at the entrance way.

How Can I Join the Building Pride Society?

Many of our alumnae remember the setting of the cornerstone when the new building was erected in 1962. Perhaps some of our parents participated in that celebrated campaign over fifty years ago. Many individuals working together were able to construct this beautiful edifice on Ocean Avenue. The Dominican Sisters of Sparkill took great pride in maintaining its splendor. Please join us in restoring the glory to our beloved school building and reinstating its pride as a beacon of Catholic Education on Ocean Avenue.

As part of the refurbishment of the front entrance, we will create a beautiful space where contributors can honor or memorialize those who have played a key role in their love of St. Edmund. Gifts of $500 and $1000 respectively will be honored with a brick laid in the shadow of the building on either side of the front entrance.

How Can I Support Project 2474?

You can make a gift in a number of ways:

  • Make a pledge over the next two years and arrange for convenient payment installments. This may allow you participate to the best of your ability while being more manageable
  • Go to our online donation page where you can either make a one-time gift or indicate a recurring gift over the next two years using Visa/Discover/MasterCard
  • Check made payable to St. Edmund Preparatory High School
  • Many companies and foundations will match the value of charitable gifts made by employees, spouses and retirees. By contacting your HR Department you could double the amount you give!

Please know that ALL gifts matter, no matter how great or small. Showing a greater number of individual gifts is equally important as the total amount raised. Many entities like to see the percentage of alumni who support our mission as well as the total number of dollars raised.
