A Catholic school closed. Then it reopened as Mandarin immersion. Now it’s expanding

March 11, 2022

I know of three Catholic schools that have faced closure, added Mandarin immersion and now are flourishing. They are All Souls in Los Angeles (see below), Maryknoll in Honolulu and St. Michael’s Catholic Academy in Queens, New York. Am I missing any?

All Souls World Language School in Alhambra broke ground on a new campus expansion project to support the growing school’s dual language and community programs. 

Made possible by grants from Shea Family Charities in collaboration with other benefactors, the buildings will house new classrooms dedicated to STEAM subjects (science, technology, engineering, the arts, and math), a performing arts center, and a “Collaborative Learning Commons” for students. 

The Sept. 23 ceremony was attended by All Souls students, Catholic schools superintendent Paul Escala, Shea Family Charities representatives, and Alhambra Mayor Katherine Lee.
