(Athol Springs, N.Y.) Saint Francis High School announced that they are planning to start a residence program for students this September.
The program will house 26 students in newly constructed double-room living areas. The rooms are being place on a portion of the third floor in Justin Hall.
School officials said the decision to offer on-campus housing was based in part on the growing number of international students.
Currently, the school has 17 international students from China, Korea, and Canada.
