In Chicago archdiocese, more high schools are going co-ed

Hales Franciscan High School in Chicago is preparing to welcome its first female students as it becomes the latest Catholic high school in the Chicago Archdiocese to go coeducational for economic reasons. The Chicago Tribune says several Catholic high schools have become coeducational in the past decade because of economic challenges and low enrollment. In 2013-14 year, 17 of the archdiocese's 38 high schools will be single-gender Catholic. Seven are all-boys schools, and 10 are all-girls.
