John Rocha, Ozark Catholic Academy's head of school, sits in a classroom Nov. 17 on the campus of the school at the Religious Education Center at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Tontitown. The academy is the area's first Catholic high school and is preparing to open next fall. The academy signed a five-year lease for use of the education center.
