The Detroit News

Detroit — The University of Detroit Jesuit High School and Academy officially launched construction of a $16 million Science and Engineering Center on Tuesday.

Guests at the ceremony were welcomed by Detroit Archbishop Allen Vigneron and the Rev. Karl Kiser, the school’s president.

The four-level, 40,000-square-foot addition to UD Jesuit High will double the school’s space for biology, chemistry and physics programs and provide labs for engineering and research, as well as the school’s eco-car and robotics programs.

The facility, being built between the main school building and the Jesuit Residence, is scheduled to be completed in August 2016.
