sapientia et veritas is on a distinguished road
The last rebuild of Catholic high schools happened from mid-50s to late 60s. And that really was the last. Holy Name moved to a new building in 1978. I think that's the newest Diocesan run school built in the state. VASJ new building was 1972. Everything else in the state was built when half the staff in the buildings was working for free, more or less. The Dioceses are not going to buy new land or build new buildings for high schools until the demographics stabilize. As long as people continue to abandon the churches, the schools, and the priesthood in droves, it makes no sense to redefine service areas until all the parish closures and consolidations are done.
