St. Robert Catholic School will open in the fall of 2018 on Ada Drive.

The Catholic elementary school will include child care, preschool, kindergarten, first and second grades with one grade per year added through eighth grade.

The school will not only provide a Catholic driven education, but also, a focus in STEM and an array of extracurricular activities.

“It is exciting to see the growth and positive energy which has emerged due to the Bishop’s Catholic Schools Initiative and our new strategic plan – ‘Catholic Schools: Bridging Faith and Future’,” said David Faber, superintendent of Catholic Schools, in a press release.

“I am grateful for the collaboration of Catholic community leaders, the parish, and the diocese in making this new school possible, and I look forward to working with parents to give their children the best education possible.”

Enrollment begins in the spring.
