Detroit Catholic Central Holds State Of The School Address, Announces Two Major Campus Development Updates

On Wednesday, January 31st, Detroit Catholic Central High School held its inaugural State of the School Address. During the event, President Ed Turek ’85 made two major campus expansion announcements, including the purchase of 149 acres of new property and the development of the Northern Athletic Complex. 

The new Athletic Complex is set to open in the Spring of 2026. It will feature the Tony Magni Track and Field Complex and the Gene Grewe Throwing Complex, comprised of two turf fields for sub-varsity use, a nine-lane track, a dedicated throwing area, additional parking, and a hospitality building with concessions, team room, and bathrooms.  

The Track and Field Complex is named after Catholic Central’s long-time, beloved track coach and teacher, Tony Magni, while the Throwing Complex is named after former English Teacher and long-time throwing coach, Gene Grewe. Both are considered legendary figures in the Shamrock community, known for their dedication to CC’s Track and Field Success.  

Turek also announced the purchase of 149 acres of new property, increasing the school’s total acreage from 118 to 267. The property is located near the crossroads of 12 Mile Road and South Hill Road in Lyon Township, 2.5 miles west of the school’s main campus in Novi.  

CC closed on the property on January 16, 2024. The space allows the school to continue developing its Vision 100 plan, which includes the George and Mary Turek Hall of Science opening in the summer of 2024.  

“The new property gives Catholic Central everything we need for the next 100 years while the Northern Athletic Complex helps us in the immediate future. Next year’s students can take advantage of the first-class facilities of the new Track and Field Complex much sooner,” stated President Ed Turek.  

The inaugural State of the School Address was held from 5:30 PM to 7:30 PM in the school’s main gym.  Tours of the George and Mary Turek Hall of Science were held before and after the presentation by RSVP only.
