Signing an initial five-year lease with the St. Pius X Parish, the school brings all of Liberty’s grade levels under a fully equipped single campus. “With graduates in the top 13% of the nation in ACT scores, we are launching the next generation of moral leaders, equipped to think broadly and deeply, formulate opinions and persuasively communicate those opinions with confidence.” said Hagstrom. “Our growth is proof that parents want to raise the bar for their children’s education without sacrificing the Christian values they teach at home and we look forward to watching Liberty grow.”
