Superior Diocese looking at virtual/distance education for high schoolers in city of Superior

Note: the entire Superior Diocese has no Catholic High Schools(a difficult prospect considering the remoteness of the area).
The Diocese of Duluth is in the process of planning a bricks-and-mortar Catholic high school in Duluth, and Cathedral School is simultaneously studying the feasibility of launching a virtual/distance education Catholic high school in Superior.

Our Lady of the Lake, Ashland, revived Catholic high school education in the diocese in 2015 through a partnership with Regis High School, Eau Claire, but the effort only lasted one school year.

However, all the schools benefited from OLL’s undertaking, and St. Francis Solanus, Reserve, utilized the distance/virtual model with Regis for two of its students this school year.

“We learned a lot from that experience,” Carr said.

The principal plans to meet with parents to see whether there is immediate interest in high school-level Catholic education. The Duluth school could take longer to establish, he said.

I guesss the question is, why not just send the kids over to the new Duluth HS for school?
