Ann Vonder Meulen, OSF, our representative on this Commission, shares the following information:
Catholic Central School, Springfield will remain open for the 2018-2019 school year. Currently, they have made significant strides in hiring new leadership and have recently introduced a new president. They now have an administrative team in place that is working diligently on enrollment and a balanced budget for the upcoming school year.

Keep in your thoughts and prayers the school communities of Mercy and McAuley as well as St. Aloysius on the Ohio Elementary School as all three of these schools end years of excellence in Catholic educational traditions and close their doors at the end of the 2017-2018 school year. The new Mercy McAuley High School will open in the 2018-2019 school year.
