Construction of the $52 million Pope Francis High School in Springfield is now in its final stage.
Spokesman for the Springfield Diocese, Mark Dupont told 22News, Pope Francis High School will open in the fall with an enrollment of 300 students.
The new high school is being rebuilt at the site where Cathedral High School once stood on Surrey Road in Springfield’s East Forest Park neighborhood. Cathedral was damaged in the June 1, 2011 tornado.
Since then, Cathedral students have attended school in Wilbraham and most recently in Chicopee under the school’s new name, Pope Francis High School.
The final graduating class away from Surrey Road will receive their diplomas Friday at Pope Francis High School in Chicopee.
