Cadigan Hall, Boston College High School’s new $12 million building on the southern-side of the school’s sprawling Dorchester campus, has officially opened its doors.

On Saturday, the Jesuit college-preparatory school celebrated the completion of the project with a ribbon cutting.

“Cadigan Hall is a very special addition to our campus and we thank Pat for his generosity and commitment to BC High’s mission of ‘challenging our students to become young men of integrity, educated in faith and for justice, committed to academic excellence and service to others’ by providing a state-of-the art facility that will greatly enhance the school’s athletics, educational, and performance offerings,” Bill Kemeza, president of BC High, said in a statement.

The expansion was made possible through a donation by Patrick Cadigan, a Cambridge native who graduated from the school in 1952.

The new two-and-a-half story, 28,000-square-foot in-fill building is located between the school’s existing McNeice Pavilion and Cushing Hall.

The structure includes space for a gymnasium, art classrooms, lecture hall, music and performance spaces, in addition to providing views of Dorchester Bay and BC High’s athletic fields.
