Light of Christ Catholic School Makes Changes

Posted:

Increased enrollment in the Bismarck Public School system has brought about many adjustments.

Now another school system is seeing growth.

The Light of Christ Catholic School system saw a 13.5 percent increase in enrollment for this school year.

St. Mary's Central High School used to be grades nine through 12.

The school made room for grades seven and eight.

Carmen Cain, Administrator for the Light of Christ 7th and 8th Grade Academy, says bringing these students to St. Mary's will better prepare them for the transition to high school.

"The teachers care about them. It's big enough where we're able to offer more class offerings and have some different disciplines that maybe they weren't offered in the past and yet it's still that small, caring environment that they experienced at their previous schools that were K through eight," says Carmen Cain, Administrator of the 7th and 8th Grade Academy.

1,225 students from pre-K through grade 12 are currently enrolled in the Light of Christ Catholic Schools making it the largest non-public school system in the state.

They're planning for future growth and are determining what kind of facility needs and changes will be required.
