Gee, do you think that maybe local Catholics are a little tired of watching their hard earned money being used to educate illegal alien brats? I knew when this school opened it couldn't last. Too many scholarships for not enough locals. It's a shame to see our faith hijacked by people with such an obvious agenda.

I have yet to understand why the Catholic Church does not financially back this school. Perhaps, if they were not paying out settlements etc... for the priest sex abuse scandal they would have more money.

If a baptist school opens should the baptist have to support it? Just because a school has baptist in it doesn't mean its part of the church.

This school had the opportunity to be part of the Atlanta Diocese but decided against it. In order to receive approval/be affiliated the school would actually have to give a portion of their tuition to the Diocese. Isn't that a bunch of bull! So they decided to stay independent. Can't say that I blame them. That way they can stay true to their mission and not have to follow directives from people who only want to make money off of them.
