With the start of school just around the corner, many young students will be continuing their education in Catholic schools across the state. Catholic schools have a proud history in Missouri – dating back before the state was even formed. But with decreasing enrollments and rising costs, many Catholic elementary and secondary schools are being forced to close their doors.
What can be done about this crisis? At the Annual Assembly on September 28 John T. James, Associate Professor at St. Louis University, will explore how Catholic schools can be saved for future generations. He will discuss the factors behind school closures and explore new innovative programs and legislative efforts designed to save Catholic schools for future generations.
