My colleague, Cathey O’Donnell of the Data Desk, put together this cool map showing where all the Catholic schools are located in the Lower Hudson Valley, in commemoration of Pope Benedict’s imminent arrival in our region.
Click on one of the markers to find out details about each school, such as its location, enrollment or website.
Interesting tidbit: Albertus Magnus High School in Bardonia has the largest enrollment of all the Catholic schools in the tri-county area.
There are 72 Catholic schools in LoHud land, though five schools are slated to close at the end of this school year: Immaculate Conception Elementary in Stony Point and St. Catharine’s Elementary in Blauvelt, along with Holy Rosary Elementary in Hawthorne, Immaculate Conception in Irvington and St. Lawrence Oâ€™Toole Elementary in Putnam County (though there’s a big campaign on to save that school; check out the info here).
