Our history is steeped in Catholic tradition and punctuated by the struggles of rugged frontier life. The story of our campus and the work done here for the salvation of souls provides interesting, entertaining, and thought-provoking reading. From its inception, which saw schools established for the Potawatomi tribe, through its days as a boys' school and college, through its seminary days during which more than 1,000 men were ordained to the Eternal Priesthood, and up to the present day, the primary focus on this campus has been Catholic education.

In this section of our website, we offer our visitors various articles on the history of our campus.
