New Catholic high school to emphasize faith, values

.- The Diocese of Corpus Christi in Texas will open a new Catholic high school on the grounds of the former Corpus Christi Minor Seminary Complex.

Pope John Paul II High School is expected to open in August 2006, reported the Caller Times. The school will offer the excellent curriculum and values associated with Catholic schools, including faith education, community spirit and a disciplined environment.

The school will accommodate 500 students; the first graduating class will be in 2010. The annual tuition will be $4,000. Students can apply for scholarships and grants to help offset the cost.

The John G. and Marie Stella Kenedy Memorial Foundation has committed $2.5 million during the next four years to help with operations and to provide scholarships. The diocese will budget an additional $600,000 per year for operations, reported the Caller-Times.

The diocese has awarded a $1.5 million construction and renovation contract to Fulton/Coastcon Construction. Work is to be completed by July.

The diocesan school system has not had a high school since 1997, when Corpus Christi Academy closed because of declining enrolment.
