Skaggs Catholic Center Looks To Expand

Administrators with Skaggs Catholic Center, which houses St. John the Baptist elementary and middle schools and Juan Diego Catholic High School, are in the planning stage of an expansion.

Initial plans call for a two-story building to be built southeast of the elementary school that would include elementary classrooms as well as classrooms for the pre-kindergarten program, a technology center and program support classroom. The lower level would have a separate entrance that can be used by Juan Diego Catholic High School for both classrooms and elective or extracurricular programs, St. John the Baptist Elementary School Principal Nikki Ward said.

With the moving of the pre-kindergarten program, there will be more space for the Guardian Angel Daycare, where the program currently resides. And when high school students use the lower level of the new building, the middle school could expand in the wing they share, which will benefit all entities.

The Skaggs Catholic Center is currently working with an architect to finalize plans, including a projected start date. There is no cost estimate available at this time.

St. John the Baptist elementary and middle school and Juan Diego Catholic School opened in 1999. Currently, there are more than 1,750 students enrolled in the three schools.
