Cardinal Stritch Catholic High School is expected to have its biggest incoming freshman class in five years next fall.

Last year’s prospective freshmen were at about 60 students. Stritch has received over 90 applications for the 2012-13 year. While the school caps its classes at 80, Kevin Parkins, vice president of advancement, says the school will take more if a student’s application looks good.

So it’s going to look nothing like we’ve experienced.”
