Mother Clelia MerloniA Catholic high school in Pensacola, Florida is set to become the first school in the United States named after our foundress, Mother Clelia Merloni.

The Mother Clelia Morning Star High School will provide a faith-filled Catholic education to students with special needs. The Diocese of Pensacola-Tallahassee, where three of our Sisters minister, plans to open the school in August for the 2020–2021 academic year.

Mother Clelia Morning Star High School will be an independent institution located on the grounds of Pensacola Catholic High School, where Sr. Kierstin Martin, ASCJ, is principal. Both schools are working together to ensure students at Mother Clelia Morning Star High School are provided diverse opportunities for inclusion at Pensacola Catholic.

There are currently two schools in Pensacola that offer Morning Star programs for special needs students at the elementary and middle school level. Sr. Margaret Ann Calcutta, ASCJ, is the director of the Morning Star program at St. John the Evangelist School.
