Following the recommendations of the Episcopal Commission, Bishop William P. Callahan has decided that no school of the Regis Catholic School System in Eau Claire will be closed.
The bishop reviewed the findings of the Episcopal Commission that consisted of four committees: Catholic Identity, Growth and Statistics, Perception, and Finance and Financial Support. Each committee was comprised of three people from around the diocese with expertise in their specific area. This included priests, religious, lawyers, retired principals, current administrators from public and private schools, along with other professionals.
In their efforts to implement the findings of the Episcopal Commission and the directives of the bishop, Regis Catholic School System has adopted the following:
• Three elementary schools – St. James, Immaculate Conception, and St. Mary’s – with Pre-K at St. James and St. Mary’s and the possibility of Pre-K in the future at Immaculate Conception – with all three elementary buildings containing Kindergarten through grade 5 (as determined by the enrollment policy).
• Regis Middle School containing grades 6 – 8
• Regis High School containing grades 9 – 12
• Central Office (selling SCRIP) on Mall Drive
Regis Catholic School System has a long history of excellence in faith formation and academics. Bishop Callahan is confident that with the continued strong support of the pastors, families and students, along with administrators, faculty and support staff, Regis Schools will remain consistent in producing quality Catholic citizens who are a credit to our fine Catholic schools and informed contributors to a better society for all.
