More Non-Catholic Students Enroll in St. Louis Catholic Schools

While many Catholic schools are struggling to keep up enrollment, some urban schools in St. Louis are seeing an uptick, and it’s non-Catholic students who are bumping up these numbers. Many of these students are from low-income families who receive need-based assistance, and see the school as a “bright spot” in the neighborhood. This St. Louis Post Dispatch article focuses on Most Holy Trinity in Hyde Park, where there has been a 25 percent increase in enrollment over the past three years. The school cites accreditation, curriculum format and enrollment outreach as just a few of the reasons for the increase in numbers.
