    Light of Christ Catholic Schools unveiled plans for the largest expansion project in its 138 year history. The Dr. Ron and Ruth Knutson family has donated 48 acres of land, located just north of 57th Avenue and east of Washington Street in Bismarck, to provide a new home for St. Mary’s Central High School.
    The current St. Mary’s Central High School facility will continue to be used by Light of Christ Catholic Schools, primarily as a middle school, for years to come. In addition, upgrades have been made, and will continue to be made to the current schools serving pre-school and elementary grade students.
