This school for Roman Catholic secondary education was built in an expressionist style. Architect Nick. Andriessen gave the school a rectangular plan with a courtyard enclosed on two sides. The school has been expanded several times. The main entrance is accentuated by a round glass front. The gable stone in the portico tells us: Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers, Nov 24. 1937.
On the northwest side, the gymnasium with changing rooms and the chapel with a communal stairwell were situated. The chapel space is recognizable by the colored stained glass windows. Doors and windows are steel, accentuated by concrete lintels, projecting canopies and black sills and wall dams. The arched windows were framed by orange bricks.v
