From St. Edward Central Catholic High School

On September 8, 1941 St. Edward HS opened its doors to 42 freshmen and 40 sophomore men and women for the first time.

The Rockford Diocese acquired the G. P. Lord School in 1941, which was originally built in 1877 as a public grade school. St. Edward HS opened later that year with eight classrooms and a cafeteria. The school was named St. Edward in honor of the patron saint of Bishop Edward Hoban and dedicated on the eve of the Feast of St. Edward, October 12, 1941. Four sisters of the order of St. Dominic from Adrian, Michigan provided the faculty for the school. Tuition was five dollars a month.

Since its humble beginnings St. Edward students have won awards in every academic area from speech to science. They have excelled on sports teams as well. St. Edward students have volunteered their services to a great variety of charitable and service organizations.
