Mother Teresa School Expansion Approved
Butler County has okayed expansion at Mother Teresa Catholic Elementary School (MTCES) in Liberty Twp. (OH).
The $3.2 million, 22,000-sq. ft. project will add an academic wing with 16 classrooms, a library, space for Spanish and art instruction, tutoring services, and an expanded kindergarten.
Currently, 460 students in Kindergarten through grade 8 attend MTCES. The school plans to add Kindergarten, first, and second grade classes in fall 2016, eventually reaching an enrollment of almost 700.
“With the zoning approval in hand, the dream to expand has become a reality,” said Principal and CEO Sr. Anne Schulz, CPPS. “We are eager to share this news with our community and open our doors to more youngsters.”
Founded in 1998 by parents at Our Lady of Sorrows Church in Monroe, MTCES is one of only three independent Catholic elementary schools in the Archdiocese of Cincinnati. It moved to the current location in 2002 and has expanded three times as enrollment grew along with the area.
“We are looking forward to playing our role in accommodating the anticipated population growth along the I-75 Corridor,” said parent and expansion project manager Tony Reed. “We started this school because there was a demand for a Catholic elementary school in the West Chester-Liberty Township area. We continue to strive to meet this demand.”
