AUSTIN - St. Gabriel’s Catholic School, located at 2500 Wimberly Lane, will complete a 30,000-sf expansion by the start of school in August 2015, according to Head of School Daniel McKenna.

The $6.6 million project will add a chapel, a performing and visual arts area, a science lab, a multimedia library and research center and an indoor sports practice center to its current 58,500-sf facility.

The school opened its 32-acre campus in 1999 with 327 students in grades ranging from prekindergarten through eighth grade, and added a middle school campus nine years later.

The expansion, which is expected to begin fall 2014, will allow for additional differentiation within the school’s curriculum. For instance, 2015’s eighth-graders will be able to choose among four different math courses offered.

In the 2012–13 school year, 393 students were enrolled, and that total increased to 438 students for the 2013–14 school year. St. Gabriel’s is not at full capacity, but will reach capacity in the near future without the expansion.
