OMS Legacy Campaign
We are pleased to share with you a new vision for Old Mission School, the development of a downtown satellite campus to serve our growing middle school population.
Recently, Old Mission Church offered to make available its share of a property on Palm Street, directly across from the Mission parking lot, for the purpose of creating a Middle School satellite campus only two blocks from the present school site. The property is owned jointly by the Church and the Catholic schools of San Luis Obispo and presently houses the OMS business office. The new campus would be home to four new classrooms, a restroom facility, and an office and a teacher prep area.
For more information, please visit the OMS Legacy Campaign page.
