Driscoll Catholic High School Closing

Driscoll Catholic High School ClosingThe Beacon News has confirmed a report that Driscoll Catholic High School in Addison will close its doors after this school year. A spokesperson for the Catholic Diocese of Joliet said the school is set to shut down.

People affiliated with the school were informed Thursday morning, and sources say donors are trying to raise enough money to save the school.

Driscoll is part of the Suburban Catholic Conference. Othere schools in the conference include Aurora-based schools Aurora Christian (joining next year), Marmion Academy, Aurora Central Catholic and Rosary (girls only), as well as Chicago Christian in Palos Heights, Wheaton Academy in West Chicago, Guerin in River Grove, Montini in Lombard, Immaculate Conception in Elmhurst, St. Edward in Elgin, Marian Central in Woodstock, and St. Francis in Wheaton.

A conference source said a school is already lined up to replace Driscoll if the school indeed closes.

The Highlanders have won eight IHSA football and three baseball state championships and just captured the Class 2A girls basketball title Feb. 28.
