Carty Fox Commons

From the minute you enter into the Carty Fox Commons rotunda with its life-size mural, you realize this is more than just an ordinary school.

The Carty Fox Commons area promotes today's students' lifestyle with healthy food options, areas of relaxation and socialization, encouragement of the fine arts, and after-school programs. Designed and formatted around a college student union, the area features a student lounge with comfortable furniture, natural lighting, and fireplace, an eating and gathering area with a food court, a gaming area, the Sawicki Family Music Center, the McQuade Theater, and Titan bookstore.

With so many students staying after school for activities and transportation it was essential to have an area where they could kick back and relax with comfortable chairs for reading or playing a game of cards with fellow Titans. Natural light from a full bank of windows and a fireplace makes the area cozy and conducive to relaxing for a few minutes after a busy day of academics.

The food area offers a wide variety of options. Healthy options for lunches and food for after school activities are provided. A grill area offers breakfast as well as healthy lunchtime alternatives. Food service starts before school for breakfast and stays open until at least 5:00 p.m. to accommodate after school activities.
