St. Bridget School Completes Conversion of the Westhampton Baptist Church into a New Middle School

Saint Bridget School has been forming disciples for Christ and leaders for the Richmond community. The dedication and generosity of staff, parents, parishioners, and alumni have enabled Saint Bridget School to thrive.

To build on our terrific legacy and to fulfill our promise of delivering a great spiritually-grounded education in today’s competitive environment, we purchased and developed plans to restore and renovate the Westhampton Baptist Church campus. Saint Bridget acquired the building for $85,000 in the summer of 2015, and began renovation that fall, a project budget of approximately $6 million. Saint Bridget embarked on their Ignite Campaign raising $2.7 million in donations, $1 million in historic tax credits, and a $2.2 million loan through the Catholic Diocese.
