The following comes from an October 24 My Valley News article:
TEMECULA – Prayers for the opening of a high school in the Temecula Valley have been answered.
After years of research and the recent completion of a feasibility study, the new St. Jeanne de Lestonnac High School is expected to open in 2017 on the same Avenida Lestonnac campus that houses the kindergarten through eighth-grade school, according to the Sisters of the Company of Mary, a religious community that has committed to build the school.
A key supporter of the project is Bishop Gerald Barnes of the Diocese of San Bernardino, which includes the Temecula area.
“I give my full and formal support to this effort by the Sisters of the Company of Mary,” Bishop Barnes said. “They have a 20-year track record of providing the best in Catholic education to the Temecula area. Now, that will extend to those important and formative years in high school.”
The new high school would draw from the cities of Temecula, Murrieta, Canyon Lake, Wildomar, Lake Elsinore and Winchester as well as some communities in Northern San Diego County. It would also draw from many Catholic parishes including St. Catherine of Alexandria in Temecula, St. Martha in Murrieta, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta in Winchester, St. Frances of Rome in in Wildomar and St. Vincent Ferrer in Sun City.
