The Diocese of Allentown is adding a new high school in Bethlehem. Kolbe Academy, set to open on Bridle Path Rd. In Bethlehem, will serve as the first recovery high school in Pennsylvania. Deputy Superintendent Dr. Brooke Tesche tells us their mission is give kids who suffer from addiction a better chance at recovery.
Recovery High schools are not a new concept, but as a Catholic recovery school, it will be the first of it's kind. No other Catholic schools exist in the United States, but Tesche says she believes "faith will make our success rate soar".
The School will accept 90 students grades 9-12. Open enrollment opens in January.
