A great start at Rome Catholic

Published Sep 17, 2018 at 4:00pm

It’s been an exciting week at Rome Catholic School (RCS). And the future looks good too.

In its third year at 400 Floyd Ave., the parochial school happily reported an 8 percent increase in enrollment. There are 104 students, including pre-K to grade 6, up from 96 at the start of the prior 2017-18 school year.

Principal Nancy Wilson enthused in a Daily Sentinel story: “I am extremely confident that Rome Catholic will flourish and remain a solid option and faith-filled choice for education in Rome.”

She termed the excitement as “palpable.”

We’re delighted that the school is prospering. In some past years, the Catholic schools have had a rough going, especially in terms of enrollments.

Wilson herself is an RCS graduate who taught in the Diocese of Syracuse for 20 years including at RCS and whose two chldfreen also attended the school.

Good luck to RCS, its faculty, staff and pupils in the challenging academic year ahead.
