The former Blue Cross Blue Shield building in Virginia has been transformed into the Marquette Catholic Middle School.

Training rooms are now classrooms. But some of the furniture and other items are still being used.

A chapel is now in place as well.

Students will walk in the doors next Tuesday, starting a new era of education for Marquette.

For now, it’s the older kids, 5th-8th grade.

Jake Rosandich, the Dean of Students, told us, “Last night we had open houses at both buildings. And we had moving days with parents and kids. It’s not just the staff, the community is bringing it all together.”

He added, “We are so grateful for all the support of all the parishes across the Range, for helping make this happen.”

Marquette has grown in recent years, and needed more space. The building is much newer than their original one downtown.

After renovations are complete on another building next to it, the PreK-4th graders will move over. So next school year, the campus will be all together again.
