GLEN CARBON, IL (KTVI)-School leaders broke ground for a brand new Catholic high school in Madison County, Illinois. Father McGivney Catholic High School will be built on land owned by the Diocese of Springfield at the corner of Old Troy and Bouse Roads in Glen Carbon.

The school will cost $7.5 million, but more than $5 million of that has already been raised through private donations.

Currently, 88 students attend Father McGivney High School, which hold classes in a private wing at St.. John Neumann Catholic School in Maryville. Sixty more students are expected to enroll next year when the school moves to its new campus in the fall of 2015.
