There are enough students to fill a St. Croix Valley Catholic high school, and the land is available to build it. Now supporters are facing another question: Can they raise the money to make the proposed school a reality? The fundraising issue could be the biggest hurdle that members of the St. Croix Valley Catholic High School Task Force will face, but so far the news has been encouraging.
A $10,000 demographic study funded by a donor indicated there would be enough students to support a ninth- through 12th-grade school. And the school already has a home — 40 acres in the Hudson School District donated by John and Georgine Schottler.
The task force needs to raise $30,000 to $50,000 to determine if backers can raise the $15 million to $30 million needed to build a school. [snip] Pioneer Press
