Progress on charter school at old North Catholic building

The new home of Marianna Bracetti Academy Charter School continues to take shape in anticipation of it’s opening in Fall of 2013.  The building is the former Northeast Catholic High School for Boys, once the largest boys school in the world.

The charter school is currently occupying an old trolley shed at Kensington Avenue and Cumberland Street.  The school is contracted by the city to educate 1,155 students.
