As you are aware, the Diocese of Erie has been working on a pastoral plan that includes Catholic schools. A preliminary plan for schools has now been released. Included with this notification is a news release that will give you an overview of the plan.
Please read the release carefully. Calling the plan a “rebirth of Catholic education,” Bishop Lawrence Persico reminds us that students in northwest Pennsylvania deserve the best education and higher-education preparedness possible.
St. Gregory School will remain a PreK through grade 8 school. It will develop a comprehensive strategic plan that continues and strengthens the relationship with Mercyhurst University and sets achievable goals to increase enrollment to a financially viable number. The school will also become a part of the new consortium of schools not currently part of a school system, enjoying similar improvements in academic quality and operational efficiency.
