  • 3/1/08 (From Edwardsville Intelligencer) An effort to establish a Catholic high school in southern Madison County continues to gain steam as a series of town hall-style meetings has been scheduled. Area high school students currently have their choice of three Catholic high schools: Marquette in Alton, Althoff in Belleville and Mater Dei in Breese. None of those options are ideal, particularly with southern Madison County growing at such a rapid pace. The study, conducted by Stewardship for Life of St. Lucie, Fla., indicates that a school should be built near Maryville and cost between $12 million and $15 million. The school could serve between 400 and 600 students from Bethalto, Edwardsville, Collinsville, Glen Carbon, Granite City, Maryville, Highland and Troy. Initial estimates have annual tuition set at $6,000 per year per student, which is comparable to other Catholic Schools in the area. Initial projections, if donations are collected according to plan, have the school opening in 2011 or 2012.
  • Is scheduled to open in 2011 in the Catholic of Springfield Diocese
