New St. Robert Catholic School featured on “Catholic School Matters” podcast

March 7, 2018

The preparations for opening St. Robert Catholic School in Ada this fall are featured in a recent edition of the “Catholic School Matters” podcast.

Podcast host Dr. Tim Uhl interviewed Renee Dwyer, project manager for the process of opening the new independent Catholic school. St. Robert Catholic School will open in August 2018 with 2-, 3-, and 4-year-old preschool and kindergarten, as well as with before- and after-school child care for these students. One additional grade will be added each of the following years, through 8th grade.

The podcast was released in late February 2018, but it had been recorded in November 2017. At the time of recording, the results of a feasibility study were still being examined to decide whether to proceed with plans for St. Robert Catholic School. Study results were encouraging and the decision to proceed with opening the school was announced in December 2017. Enrollment for St. Robert Catholic School is underway.
