2006/2007 school year
This year saw the beginning of the Board limited jurisdiction.
The six schools included All Saints, Holy Cross, St. Philip Neri, Central Catholic, St. Andrew/St. Rita, and Holy Angels.
All Saints School location was too large for the community and therefore was moved back to the grounds located at St. Anthony and renamed St. Anthony School. The Catholic Urban School Consortium officially was named Mother Theodore Catholic Academies.
Research on a charter school concept began.
Charter School application to the Marion County Charter School was submitted for consideration for St. Andrew/St. Rita and St. Anthony.
Final approval of the charter application was received to transform St. Andrew/St. Rita to Andrew Academy and St. Anthony to Padua Academy.
2010/2011 school year
Mother Theodore Catholic Academies continued with the oversight of the 4 Catholic Schools. At the same time MTCA was contracted by the ADI Schools, Inc. to oversee the operations of Andrew Academy (previously St. Andrew/St. Rita) and Padua Academy (previously St. Anthony). These two schools are mayor sponsored public charter schools.
