Cardinal William H. Keeler to Dedicate New St. John Regional Catholic School in Frederick

FREDERICK, MD – St. John Regional Catholic School will be formally dedicated on Sunday, October 2 at 3:30 p.m. by Cardinal William H. Keeler, Archbishop of Baltimore.

The school, originally located in the historic district of downtown Frederick, moved to a new 27-acre site on Opossumtown Pike this summer. The new building provides the space necessary to offer three classes at each grade level, as well as separate space for art and music instruction. It boasts a state-of-the-art media center, science lab, computer lab and modern gymnasium.

There are approximately 550 students in grades K-8 and this year, for the first time, a Pre-K program for four-year-olds is being offered.

St. John Regional Catholic School is accredited by the Middle States Association of Colleges and Schools and currently serves seven Frederick County parishes, including St. Katharine Drexel, with whom the school shares the 27-acre campus.
