ESCANABA, Mich. (WLUC) - Holy Name Catholic High School is partnering with the Chesterton Schools Network. The school’s official name will be Holy Name High School – A Chesterton Academy.

An education from HNHS – A Chesterton Academy will be similar to a liberal arts education, with Catholic teachings. There will also be an online program for students outside of the Escanaba area. Principal Joseph Carlson is excited for students to begin learning in the new high school.

“It closed in 1971 and it’s kind of providential maybe that it’s opening in 2021 – exactly 50 years from the date of closing,” said Joseph Carlson, principal at Holy Name Catholic School.

In addition, Gladstone High School partnered with HNHS to allow students to try out for any of Gladstone’s sports teams.
