St. Mary's Catholic School expanding

Released by St. Mary's Catholic School:

LONGVIEW, TX - St. Mary's Catholic School is proud to announce the opening of the High School for the 2011-12 school year.

A press conference announcing the opening will be held Thursday, 10:00 a.m., in the St. Mary's school library.

This project has been in the planning stages for many years and Bishop Alvaro Corrada del Rio gave his blessing Friday, December 10 to make this dream a reality.

Thanks to the enthusiastic support of the parents of the current Eighth Grade, it will be possible to welcome the first Freshman class in August 2011.

These Freshman will continue to lead the way as St. Mary's adds a new grade each year until their graduation in 2015.

The idea for expansion into High School has been developed over the past 5 years and led to a decision to welcome the first Freshman class in August 2011.  This announcement brings to fruition the work of many people.

Applications for enrollment are now being accepted for all students entering the 9th grade in the 2011-12 school year. Any family desiring a rigorous college preparatory academic program with a hands-on field-based approach to learning, coupled with multiple fine arts options and lifetime sports all in a Christian environment should contact the school. Interested families should call Amy Allen, Principal, at 903-753-1657, ext. 117, or email aallen@stmaryslgv.org.
