Holy Cross Elementary and Central Catholic High School are set to merge into one unified school starting next school year. 

According to the Houma-Thibodaux Diocese, the two schools are merging as part of the diocese's new Vision 2020. The program will create what educators hope to be a seamless curriculum from Pre-K through 12th grade with the opportunity to enhance academic excellence. 

Holy Cross Elementary and Central Catholic High School already occupy the same property on Cedar Street in Morgan City, connected by Holy Cross Church. Holy Cross currently serves 241 students in the Morgan City and surrounding areas while Central Catholic has a current enrollment of 222. The project of merging the two schools has been in the works for nearly two years with planning begun by Bishop Shelton Fabre. 

 Deacon Vic Bonnaffee III, principal of Central Catholic High School and Amanda Talbot, principal of Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School shared their approval of the coming merger at a meeting Monday. Talbot stated, "Catholic education in the Morgan City area is highly valued. Through the unification of the schools, we will be able to work as a team to strengthen and build a seamless curriculum and spiritual formation for Pre-K - 12th-grade students."

Holy Cross Catholic Elementary School and Central Catholic High School will officially transition to the new unified diocesan Catholic school in the 2018-2019 school year.
