Lindsay Holy Family/Humphrey St. Francis High Schools Merging

HUMPHREY- The Archdiocese of Omaha has announced the decision to merge Lindsay Holy Family Jr./Sr. High School and Humphrey St. Francis Jr./Sr. High School.

In a letter sent out earlier in December, the Archdiocese explained the reasoning including an ongoing teacher shortage, 2 catholic schools competing for the same resources, teacher vacancies, and Holy Family not being compliant with state requirements and the danger of them losing their accreditation from the State of Nebraska. The 2 schools will unite into a new central catholic junior and senior high school at the current Humphrey St. Francis High School site beginning next fall.

The new school will be named in the coming weeks. The merger will not affect either community’s elementary school.
