ROME – The former Rome Catholic School is up for sale with a price tag of $1.2 million.
The building at 800 Cypress St. in Rome opened in 1963 as Rome Catholic High School, but the school consolidated due to declining enrollment. The school, which was originally pre-K through 12th grade, changed to pre-K through 6th grade in 2013.
Rome Catholic School then relocated to the former St. Peter’s School in 2015, and the Rome City School District began leasing the old Rome Catholic building for Strough Middle School students while that school was being renovated.
According to a listing on 42floors.com, the building is 64,930 square feet and it’s located on a 15-acre lot.
Officials say several parties have already shown interest in purchasing the former school building.
