Progress pictures

Demolition and construction began in late April 2020. The team at HGC has been working hard to renovate La Salle High School while preserving important elements of our history. Phase 1 will be completed in time for school to open on August 26, 2020. Check back often as we'll be posting pictures of our progress along the way. #AlwaysBe
