Dear Friends,

We’re moving! It’s been a busy couple of months for us at Cardinal Newman Academy, and we are thrilled to announce that our new home is in Bon Air, in northern Chesterfield County. We have agreed to a four-year lease to rent the school building formerly occupied by St. Michael’s Episcopal Elementary School at 8706-A Quaker Lane, Bon Air, VA, 23235. Along with welcoming our new Head of School, Steve Fitzpatrick, this move is a significant milestone in our continued growth as we enter our third academic year.

At our new campus, we now have expanded amenities and room to grow. Inside, we are renting approximately 7,000 sq. feet, which includes an office, four large classrooms, and a large Atrium. We also enjoy shared use of a kitchen, stage, and multi-purpose room. We are excited to also have shared use of a gym (pictured above, on the left), outdoor basketball courts, and fields. These amenities will allow us to continue expanding our athletic, academic, and extra-curricular offerings. We will also be able to create, for the first time, a school chapel.

More outdoor space awaits our students and faculty

In many ways, the West End facility we opened in was perfect for our size and needs. As we enter our third year and look ahead to sustained growth into the future, we could not be more thrilled with our new facility. We look forward to completing our move and opening our doors to welcome you, our community of supporters, to our exciting new space.

In Christ,

John P. O’Herron
