The legacy of E.D. White lives on through the community that surrounds and supports our school. We are always trying to improve our facilities and programs in a way that makes graduates and our community proud.
The mission of E. D. White Catholic High School is to impart the Catholic faith, promote academic excellence and enhance self-esteem. We have long desired to provide an area on our campus for quiet and reflective contemplation; an area where students, faculty, parents and supporters could go to pray the rosary, the stations of the cross, or simply pray in a peaceful environment. The mission of the Sisters of Mount Carmel calls for contemplative prayer and a devotion to Mary, and we would like to build an area which would pass this legacy on to future generations.
The Our Lady of Mount Carmel Grotto and Devotional Garden will provide such a space for our students. Paying homage to the Sisters of Mount Carmel who last lived in the convent at St. Joseph Catholic Elementary school, the grotto would be located in between E. D. White and St. Joseph under two large oaks that were planted when these two schools were built long ago. The garden would have a grotto in the center with two walking rings surrounding the grotto. One of the walking paths would follow the rosary and the outside ring would have the stations of the cross.

The Athletics Department is in the process of upgrading facilities for both the student-athletes, as well as the coaching staff. The football locker room is being expanded and a new, state-of-art weight room is being constructed. These upgrades will allow for the future creation of coaches offices and film rooms.
