If parents living in Greenwood or the Center Grove area want to send their children to a Catholic high school, they have to drive to the southside.
A group of local parents is pushing to change that. A study is underway on building a new Catholic high school south of Indianapolis.
Last year, parents from SS. Francis and Clare Catholic School in the Center Grove area asked the Archdiocese of Indianapolis to consider adding a Catholic high school south of the city. Nine of the 14 families whose eighth-graders graduated in May decided to start making the drive this fall so their children could attend Roncalli High School, which is located near Interstates 465 and 65.
