Did you go to St Edward High School?

St Edward High

The full name is St. Edward’s Central Catholic High School. This is usually shorten to St. Ed’s. It is the local Catholic School. Like the other Catholic schools/churches in the area, it is part of the Rockford diocese.

St. Edward was established in 1941. The Adrian, Michigan Dominican Sisters sent four nuns to become the faculty. It was named after St. Edward. This was in honor of the patron saint Bishop Edward Hoban.

To keep up with the times, the school has added rooms and technology over the years. One of the highlights of the school’s history is that it was the first high school in Elgin to offer driver’s education. This happened in the year 1955.

Their mascot is the green wave. The school colors are green and gold.
