In a letter dated April 28th, Fr. Kyle Stanton, pastor of Good Shepherd and Holy Family Parishes, announced to his parishioners that Salve Regina Academy will open for the 2019-2020 Academic year on the site of the Holy Family Parish Center.
This new parish school is built upon the vision of an “authentically Catholic community of lifelong learners dedicated to discovering all that is Good, True, and Beautiful through a commitment to academic excellence and personal discipleship in the holistic tradition of Catholic education”. Two years ago, Fr. Stanton formed a committee to establish the location, curriculum, and culture of a new Catholic school. Parents wanted a curriculum, culture, and mission distinctly different from that of other schools.
For the September 2019 school year, there are currently has 81 students pre-registered for grades PreK-8, and the school is operating on a waitlist for the September 2019 school year.
Plans to finalize the opening of Salve Regina Academy are still very much underway. The Diocesan Catholic Schools Office is working closely with the school committee and will be aiding the school, in a variety of ways, throughout its inaugural year. The school requires security cameras, fire alarms, fire doors in each classroom, partial ADA upgrades and critical fire escape exits in classroom, with an expanded easement on one side of the building.
Catholic Education Support
Our State Council goal is to raise $20,000 to help fund these necessary upgrades. Your Council’s donation not only supports Salve Regina Academy, but serves as a commitment to Catholic education all over our state and fulfills our evangelistic calling. Councils that conduct a specific fund raising event to helps support the repairs to the building, may qualify under the Community category in the Faith in Action program.
Checks should be sent to State Secretary Ray Lemay, 36 Brock St., Manchester NH 03102 with the Memo Line Cat. 037 Catholic Education Support.
