During the 2010-2011 school year, Strake Jesuit celebrated its 50th Anniversary. Founded in 1960, the school opened its doors for the first day of classes on September 15, 1961 (delayed five days due to Hurricane Carla). Over the course of the year, a number of events and projects were undertaken to celebrate this historical year.
~ TWO MAJOR PROJECTS MARK ANNIVERSARY ~
