Designed to support current and future academic goals, the 35-acre campus renovation in Bergen County will include the build of a new facility that will encompass a chapel, up to 16 classrooms, a cafeteria and servery, locker rooms, trainers room, weight room as well as allow for the renovation and repurposing of existing space to provide an expanded bookstore, office space, and an auxiliary gymnasium.

"We are delighted to have Michael Graves Architecture and Design working on our project," said Father James Heuser, SDB, Director and President of Don Bosco Prep. "Their reputation for design excellence certainly generates donor interest and their attention to detail ensures a building of the highest quality."

“As part of the master planning process, we presented multiple options for every programming, planning and design decision, and advised Don Bosco on the pros and cons of each scenario,” said Tom Rowe, Principal with MGA&D. "Design excellence does not necessarily have to mean expensive design."
