Mother Mary Lange Catholic School Groundbreaking Ceremony
When Archbishop William E. Lori joins civic and community leaders in breaking ground on Mother Mary Lange Catholic School in Baltimore this Wednesday, the event will mark an important milestone in the history of the Archdiocese of Baltimore and the city.
Continuing a long legacy of equipping young people with a solid academic and spiritual foundation, the first Catholic elementary school to be built in the city in six decades will provide state-of-the-art facilities and a nurturing, Christ-centered environment for learning.
Named in honor of the founder of the first women's religious community for women of African-American descent, Mother Mary Lange Catholic School will be the new home for current students of Holy Angels Catholic School and Ss. James and John Catholic School.
To open in September 2021, the school is expected to enroll 400 in its inaugural year, drawing students living in 40 zip codes to one 21st-century facility. There will be room to grow to a capacity of 520.
Nearly 50 university, corporate, philanthropic and nonprofit partners are committed to ensuring that students receive a superior education and supportive services.
With the help of numerous supporters, more than $19.5 million has already been raised toward the $23.9 million project. $19 million will go to capital expenses, with $500,000 designated for scholarships. The Archdiocese is also seeking to endow two $2.5 million funds each for operating expenses and tuition grants and aid.
