Sudbury Catholic School Board Increases Enrollment Cap at Marymount Academy

May 7, 2002 - At a special meeting held to review the Marymount enrolment issue on Tuesday, April 30th, Trustees of the Sudbury Catholic District School Board passed a motion directing the administration to increase enrolment at Marymount Academy for the 2002-2003 and future school years. Trustees reviewed a number of different enrolment scenarios presented to them by Mr. Robert Boucher, Director of Education for the SCDSB and in the end decided to pass a resolution that would increase the number of Grade 7 students from 78 to 92 for September 2002 and from 52 to 90 for September 2003, plateauing at 90 for each following year. The Grade 7 and 8 programs will have a total enrolment of 180 pupils, with six classrooms of 30 students each. In addition, renovations inside the school totaling approximately $110,000 will be undertaken as needed to create up to one an extra classroom for 2003-2004, two more in 2004-2005 and one more in 2005 ?2006.

The decision to allow increased enrolment in Grades 7 to Grade 12 will bring the school's enrolment to 620 students. It also follows through on the mandate of parents, teachers and Marymount's School council who had asked Trustees to create more classrooms and to increase the enrolment at the Academy. The approved solution continues to meet the established mission of providing quality education in an all girls Catholic school for advanced academic, and enriched programming only.

The enrolment of Marymount will grow from 419 to 491 in September 2002 to 556 in

September 2003 and stabilizing to approximately 620 in September 2004. The Sudbury Catholic District School Board is pleased to have been able to provide a responsible and balanced system solution, which will ensure a solid enrolment of 180 Grade 7 and 8 elementary students and 440 Grade 9 to 12 secondary students at Marymount Academy.
