Staff and students now have a better visual of what the future Henry Clay High School could look like. The school, which is anticipated to be completed by winter 2028, addresses environmental concerns and aims to offer better support for employees and students.

The $151.6-million building is being funded through a bond issue and led by Tate Hill Jacobs Architects, who recently led Tates Creek High School’s redesign.

Here’s an overview of what the new campus is anticipated to feature:

  • A three-story, 322,569-sqft main building
  • Relocating the baseball and softball fields
  • An additional 70 parking spaces
  • Outdoor learning spaces
  • An amphitheater

According to principal architect Katrina Littrell, the old school will remain operational throughout the construction, and a better look at the renovated school will be available by this fall.
