Catholic schools take registrations

By Sarah Doty

Austin Area Catholic Schools are taking new registrations for the 2009-2010 school year.

The schools offer programs from pre-school, which include a 3-year-old and a 4- and 5-year old program, to 12th grade.

"Catholic education is predicated on the premise that the education of a child is a partnership," said Mary Holtorf, director of schools. "Parents are welcomed and urged to become involved in their child’s education."


To learn more about programs and tuition assistance, call the elementary school office at (507) 433-8859 or the Pacelli Junior/Senior High School office at (507) 437-3278. Financial aid forms are available in both offices, and scholarships are an option.

Personal tours are available upon request, and all faiths are welcome.

"The curriculum, programs and extracurricular activities at Austin Catholic schools help broaden a student’s interests, build confidence and teach self-discipline," said Holtorf. "Catholic schools help children become the best they can be, both inside and outside the classroom."
