School Graduates - St. John's

St. John's parochial school was started in 1877, very near the beginning of Rev. A. J. Sauer's pastorate of St. John's Catholic church. It was first housed in a one-story frame school building on the north side of South Main street, nearly opposite the present two-story brick building, which was erected in 1904, during the pastorate of Rev. J. J. Driscoll. It continued for a number of years teaching only the elementary branches, and many of its pupils entered and graduated from the Carrollton High School. From the start the school was taught by Dominican Sisters. Enrollment in 1896, 85.
The school building had been planned with a view to the ultimate establishment of the hight school, and the plan was accomplished in 1922, during the pastorate of Rev. Thos. E. Cusack.
The frame building for the Dominican Sisters adjoining the church on the south, built in 1881, was removed in 1922, and a larger and more modern home for the instructors was erected east of the school building.
The first graduating class, composed of eight boys and eight girls, received diplomas at the commencement exercises June 1, 1926.
