Catholic school moves campus to provide stronger faith based education for students

A local Catholic school is making a move to help better serve the Yakima community.

Saint Paul Cathedral School announced that they will be moving to the Holy Family Parish campus this fall, in light of rising maintenance costs at the old building.

Bishop Joseph Tyson of Saint Paul says, the move will advance student opportunities, and help provide a more rich faith based experience for everyone not just the students.

“We’re building our schools up to be part of the great environment of education already here in Yakima. So we’re here serving the parents, and really hopefully enhancing the quality of education experience not only for the students but for the parents,” Bishop Tyson of Saint Paul said.

According to Bishop Tyson all 172 students currently enrolled at Saint Paul can expect to be in their new classrooms by the end of August.

Students will be close to the church, and the big outdoor field at the new campus will also help the school further develop their sports programs.

While many financial details still need to be worked out, the school will have a much better idea of what they still need once they are all moved in.
