Gerardi Athletic Field Complex

We are thrilled to give you a snapshot of our newly transformed Gerardi Athletic Field Complex! We are eager to start using this incredible state-of-the-art outdoor athletic facility on a daily basis for Physical Education classes, student clubs, summer camps, and other activities. The athletic complex features the installation of a regulation-size basketball court, a turf base, and multi-sport enhancements. 

The transformation of Gerardi Athletic Field Complex was essential to ensuring the continued modernization and excellence of Hill's facilities. As St. Joseph Hill Academy's student body has increased in recent years, we knew it was imperative to utilize our beautiful 17-acre campus to its full potential. The major overhaul of our outdoor athletic complex will promote the physical and mental health of our students reflecting our Academy's commitment to providing an education for the whole student (their social, emotional, physical, and mental well-being). 

Of course, this all would not be possible without the mission-critical support of our Academy's benefactors.

As we look to the future, it also becomes evident that sustained effort and dedication will remain pivotal for the ongoing maintenance and enhancement of this project. Maintaining the momentum and ensuring the longevity of this project will require ongoing commitment from our donors for regular upkeep and diligent maintenance. It's imperative to acknowledge that our journey doesn't end with the project's unveiling; rather, it marks the beginning of the journey of the Gerardi Athletic Field Complex.

Donors at one of the Leadership Levels will be recognized on Exclusive Field Signage and all donors to the project will receive a personal invitation to join us for a Ribbon-Cutting Special Event!

For the opportunity to be included on our exclusive on-field signage, please be sure to make your gift of $500 or above before June 30, 2024. All donors, regardless of amount, will be listed on our Virtual Donor Wall here.
