Since the current school building was completed in 1956, the campus has expanded several times. In 2002, construction was completed on a project that included an eight-lane swimming pool with diving well, a field house with a 160-meter track, and several basketball courts. In the 2006-07 academic year, the outdoor track and football stadium were renovated. A 3,500-seat stadium was constructed and an 8-lane synthetic track was installed. The majority of the funds for this reconstruction was provided by the Cedarburg Athletic Booster Club and private donors. The school has over ten acres of irrigated land designated for team practices.
