History of the Basilica School

Serving students until 1975          

The Basilica Grade School first opened as the Pro-Cathedral School in August of 1913. The school closed in 1975. Over ninety years after its doors first opened, the school has remained a cherished part of our parish history.

Thousands of students call the Basilica School their alma mater. Former students express affection for the sisters, the diversity of students and the quality of education. Mary Ann Guthrie, class of 1971 agrees, calling the school a"magnificent place to learn."

Calling all Basilica school alumni.

We need to find your classmates. If you are alumni, faculty or staff or know anyone who is, please contact us with your name, class year, address, phone and email address and we will add you to the mailing list.
