Noteworthy Classification Features:

A complex of buildings clad in monochromatic tan wire-cut bricks. Rectangular shaped sanctuary in plan with a gable roof that overhangs the front façade. The overhang is supported by 4 wing walls that subdivide the façade into 3 sections. The center recessed section has a half round stained glass window with angular panes of colored glass and clear anodized aluminum mullions that form a star shape. The panes of glass have the appearance of marble. Above the 3 sets of front doors are the words: Tolentine College Chapel. The doors and windows are surrounded by limestone forming a large arch. The arch is flanked by flat panels of polished stone. The remaining facade sections are clad in the same polished stone with religious symbols etched in the panels. The roof is clad in wood shakes. The campanile is large in scale and capped with a metal peaked hip roof, topped with a clear anodized aluminum cross. The open air section at the top (where the bell is located) has double panels of limestone. The campanile has double hung windows.
