Academy at St. Sabina celebrates eighth graders entering their next chapter in education


Cassandra Noldon smoothed her son's shirt and tie in the vestibule of St. Sabina Church as they awaited the start of his graduation ceremony.

Bryce Noldon smiled as he thought about heading to Bishop DuBourg High School in the fall. During a visit to the school last year, he got to check out the classrooms, including the science lab, where he will study his favorite subject.
