EVANSTON - Teams of teachers and principals at 21 Catholic elementary schools will participate in a five-year training program at Xavier University, supported with a $2 million grant from the Clement and Ann Buenger Foundation.

Beginning in January, 88 people from the schools will get instruction and credits in executive leadership, science or math instruction through the initiative. The program encourages educators to beef up their skills and certification, ultimately creating more highly skilled principals, math and science teachers.

The participating schools:

Nativity, Pleasant Ridge; Our Lady of the Rosary, Winton Woods; Our Lady of Victory, Delhi Township; Our Lady of Visitation, Mack; Our Mother of Sorrows, Roselawn; Prince of Peace, Madisonville; Resurrection, Price Hill; St. Aloysius on the Ohio, Sedamsville; St. Bartholomew, Springfield Township; and St. Bernadette, Amelia.

Also, St. Cecilia, Oakley; St. Francis De Sales, Walnut Hills; St. Gabriel Consolidated, Glendale; St. James, White Oak; St. John the Evangelist, Deer Park; St. Lawrence, Price Hill; St. Louis, Owensville; St. Mary, Hyde Park; SS Peter and Paul, Reading; St. Vivian, Finneytown; and St. William, Price Hill.
