Catholic school set to open in Lancaster

Sunday, December 31, 2017

The region of northern New Hampshire is poised to again have a Catholic elementary school after years without one.

Mount Royal Academy North, an independent private elementary school, is slated to open in Lancaster in September 2018. The Caledonian-Record reports an informational meeting about the school is scheduled for Jan. 9, as enrollment for the school is set to open.

Jill Colby, director of Mt. Royal Academy North, said Thursday that the goal is to begin as a kindergarten through fourth grade school. Surveys have indicated that is the biggest need in the region.

Colby says the hope is to expand to succeeding grades in years ahead.

MRA North is finalizing a lease with All Saints Parish for the school to be located on church property.
