three miles south of the church; always in the heart of the parish
Our parish school began in 1860 as Saint Aloysius School for Boys and Girls and then as Saint Mary's School in a house where today's Knights park at Columbus Hall. When the parish bought a house and lot where the Prayer Garden now sits, the wooden school house was rolled over logs across the corner, and attached to the house, which would serve as a convent first for the Sisters of Nazareth and then for the Dominican Sisters from Nashville. The Old Chapel was built next door and dedicated in 1880 to replace the older church at 4th and College Street. A two-story school building served from 1917 to 1969, when the school closed, until 2000 when the parish aquired the campus at 1901 Madison Street. A few years later the name was changed to Immaculate Conception School. The graduating 8th graders of 2016 represent 125 academic years of Catholic education in Clarksville.
The parishioners of Immaculate Conception Church are pleased to join with the sacrifices being made by parents for a Catholic education for their children. Studies show that Catholic schools are instrumental in forming the leaders of our culture in academics, business, and politics. The gem that is Immaculate Conception School is not only for the benefit of our students, but also for the common good of the entire community. To see this, one need only to look at the life accomplishments of her alumni.
And so, I am honored to be part of Alumni and Friends of St. Mary / Immaculate Conception School.
Blessings to all.
Fr. Steve Wolf, Pastor
