W.A. Klinger initiated construction of the new high school with Phase I, the $15 million fine arts wing, which opened in 2014.  The 37,600 s.f. Bishop Heelan Fine Arts Building features a 627-seat auditorium, as well as a large chapel.  Phase II of the project ($12 million, 55,000 s.f. academic wing) included construction of new classrooms, administrative offices, a counseling center, and chaplain offices.  The new facility includes technology upgrades, lecture and science labs, and learning centers where students can participate in group work.  Students of Bishop Heelan High School rang in the new year by spending their first day of classes in the new classrooms.
