SINSINAWA CONVENT COMING DOWN IN 2020

Our Dominican convent, once filled with Sinsinawa Dominican Sisters, has stood vacant for the past two years. Since then, we have investigated several alternative uses for the building but due to the high costs associated with bringing the building up to the required code standards as well as the many necessary upgrades, an alternative use is not feasible. After financial and feasibility reviews, the Board of Directors and administration has concluded that tearing down the convent is our best long-term solution for our school, property and future growth.  Please click here to watch a short tribute video.
