Catholic high school in Terre Haute to close at end of school year

TERRE HAUTE — John Paul II Catholic High School will close at the end of the current school year, the board of governors announced today.

The last class of seniors will graduate June 16.

"We didn't have the resources to continue next year," said Ryan Cummins, president of the board of governors. "It is too bad. A lot of people put in a lot of work over the years."

John Paul II Catholic High School began operations as a ministry of St. Patrick Parish  in fall 2000. The goal of the school was to provide high school students in the area with a strong academic course of study as well as continuing instruction in the tenets of the Catholic faith, according to a news release.

“We are proud to state that over the course of the last 13 years, the school has fulfilled this mission with exceptional dedication and excellence. The teachers and administration of the school, a combination of both volunteers and paid staff, demonstrated this dedication in their daily efforts teaching all the students that were fortunate enough to attend over the years,” according to a news release announcing the closure.

The school is housed at 1330 Lafayette Ave., which formerly was Sacred Heart School.
