The history of Catholic schools in Saginaw dates back to 1868, but only in recent years have the schools joined together as a single system. Saginaw Area Catholic Schools formed in 2006, bringing St. Helen School, Ss. Peter & Paul School, St. Stephen School, St. Thomas Aquinas School and Nouvel Catholic Central High School under one umbrella. In March of 2010, the four parish elementary/middle schools were consolidated into two: St. Stephen School and St. Thomas Aquinas School. The schools were brought together to secure the future of Catholic education in the community and provide a sustainable financial model while maintaining a tradition of excellence in academics, arts and athletics. Governance is by a Board of Trustees under the Vicar of Education, Father Robert H. Byrne, and Bishop Joseph R. Cistone.
