In 2007, the school adopted a Master Plan or PAD (Planned Area Development) approved by the City of Tucson. This PAD provided the blueprint for construction projects and building renovation for the next generation. The PAD effort, led by Fr. Fred Tillotson, O.Carm., President, Greg Aiken, Director of Operations, and Kay Sullivan, Director of Advancement, required the closure of the Cherry Street entrance and the utilization of a new entry from Glenn Street as the main entrance to the school. From 2010 to 2012 , Salpointe underwent near constant renovations from major construction projects to ongoing classroom refurbishment to recurring maintenance. Over the summer of 2012, the school remodeled the Glenn Street parking lot into a new, efficient and effective space that offers ample parking and a student drop-off area.
On November 1, 2013, Salpointe broke ground on the Building Leaders and Legacy capital campaign, led by Kay Sullivan, President, Sr. Helen Timothy, IBVM, Principal, Greg Aiken, Director of Operations, and Mindae Kadous, Director of Advancement. This $12.5 M project, funded by generous donations, literally and figuratively moved Salpointe into a state of the art, collegiate level facility with corollary premier academic programming. The 25,000 sq ft. Sayre Stevens Student Center became the new heart of campus. The new student center included an 8,000 square foot gathering place, Foundation Hall, that serves the school’s students and employees for daily food services as well as monthly all-school masses, Homecoming/ Sal’s Diner and daily large scale events and gatherings. Also located within the Sayre Stevens Student Center are the Jim and Vicki Click Family Library and Technology Center, Our Lady of Mt. Carmel Chapel, Salpointe Spirit Store, and O’Rielly Student Services Center, which houses the counseling department, admissions and the deans’ offices.
Building Leaders and Legacy also created and constructed the Cracchiolo Family Science Technology Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Center, offering the triplex Innovation Center, Fabrication Lab and Biotechnology Lab. This 10,000 square foot facility took the place of the 500 wing DeConcini Library. The senior patio was renovated into the new Herb, Diana and Madison ‘17 Kai Family STEM patio. The patio plays host to senior lockers as well as a solar array that powers STEM projects and a DNA double helix-shaped agricultural area which is cultivated by a collaborative STEM group project. Additionally, the campaign created the J. Michael Geddes Family Athletic Complex, including the new Nancy Roy Softball field, updated baseball field and renovated track and field facilities.
January 5, 2015 marked the official dedication of the Sayre Stevens Student Center, named in honor of major donors Sharon Sayre ‘80 and Jeff Stevens in tribute to Sharon’s parents, JoAnn and Jerry Sayre. This beautiful facility was met with praise and acclaim from students, faculty, donors and the Tucson community. This “heart of the campus” is now the cornerstone of Salpointe Catholic and part of what sets the school apart from other college-prep and private institutions not only in Tucson but in Southern Arizona.
In the summer of 2016, classroom renovations continued along with the creation of the new Fr. John Malley, O.Carm., Kindness Patio in the sophomore patio.
In 2018, Salpointe continues to meet the needs of its Lancer students and the Tucson community by initiating the $10M ASPIRE: Arts Academics Athletics capital project
. This initiative, led by Kay Sullivan, President, Ernie Duarte, CFO/COO, and Jennifer Harris, Director of Advancement, will create a synergistic center for the arts, including drama, band, dance, choir as well as 2D and 3D arts. It will double the size of the weight room, air condition the gym, add lighting to the softball, baseball and track fields, renovate the gym concession area and renovate four classrooms into six new learning spaces.
