The Celebrating Tradition…Building Our Future Capital Campaign has raised over $2.5 million in commitments and pledges. It is through the generosity of the campaign donors that we have been able to implement capital upgrades needed to ensure IC Catholic Prep will become become the first choice for local families seeking a college preparatory education.
The participation of numerous alumni, parents, friends, and members of the community has allowed ICCP to pursue the implementation of capital upgrades on our campus, including the new Plunkett Athletic Complex – which has already become a symbol of pride for the school and an impressive addition to the Elmhurst community!
Thanks to you, we have been able to complete some of the capital projects below:
• Purchased 6 Digital Pianos
• Launched new ICCP website
• Laptop cart with 30 HP Revolve 810 Tablets
• New roof, soffit and fascia
• New meeting/film room with large flat screen TV
• New concessions area
• New training room
• Configuration for additional storage and additional sidewalk and building access
• Added ventilation, new paint and plumbing repairs to locker room and shower area
ICCP students and visitors experience athletics in an environment that is no longer driven solely by weather, daylight, and field conditions. By installing a drainage system and synthetic turf to accommodate baseball, football, lacrosse, soccer and softball practices and competitions, ICCP provides the ultimate in usability, safety, and durability – transforming Plunkett Field into a symbol of pride in our community. Under the lights, ICCP sports has become more than just an extra curricular activity, but rather an event for which the whole town can gather to enjoy.
Generations of alumni join the current ICCP students, families and Elmhurst community in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere in a beautiful setting adorned with personalized brick pavers that honor those who continue to love and support our school. We hope to finalize this project by adding three more stadium light poles, a high tech sound system, and state-of-the-art seating which will create a lasting impression for all who visit or compete at Plunkett Athletic Complex.
While a great deal has been accomplished over the past five years, we must now turn our focus on the Cottage Hill campus facility. We are committed to designing an atmosphere, both in the classroom and throughout the campus, to ensure that we are on balance with what today’s students require for a successful learning environment.
The IC Catholic Prep Board of Directors has prioritized constructing new science laboratories and classrooms to further advance our academic facilities. These renovations will allow ICCP to match our learning environment with our current rigorous curriculum and create new opportunities in the areas of Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM).
Science Lab upgrades may include, but are not exclusive of:
• Reconfiguration and replacement of classroom cabinetry, fixtures, student tables and Instructor’s Units
• Replacement/Addition of new sinks, faucets and gas outlets
• Addition of large wash sink, fume hood and emergency eyewash and shower stations
Science Lab Construction: $700,000

Much of the classroom furniture has been cared for over the decades and is still in use today. It is time to renovate, replace and repair many of the fixtures in the classrooms and hallways.
Capital Upgrades to 217 Cottage Hill Campus may include, but are not exclusive of:
- Asbestos removal
- New carpet in the 2nd floor hallway and Main Office space
- New classroom furniture
