While a city annexation plan is moving forward once again, the brainstorming behind a South County Catholic high school is already well under way and has been for a number of years.
The Diocese of San Jose said fundraising, a construction timetable and overall project costs have been put on hold until the Local Agency Formation Commission rules on the City of Morgan Hill’s annexation request, by mid-December at the earliest.
Proponents of a new Catholic high school southeast of Morgan Hill are keeping their fingers crossed that the county body will change course from previous denials and allow them to build the private school.
“We did some preliminary fundraising before 2016 but decided to postpone our campaign until it is passed through LAFCO,” said Rev. Steve Kim of St. Lucy Parish in Campbell. Kim has been designated as the spokesperson for the Catholic Diocese of San Jose and those trying to turn a concept into a reality for South County families.
