At the time of the merger between Ladywood School and St. Agnes in 1970, 600 girls attended Ladywood-St. Agnes School. The quality of the education maintained there led to the development of many leaders in the community and elsewhere. Meanwhile, areas in the central part of the city of Indianapolis were changing. Cathedral High School for Boys, located across the street from the former St. Agnes Academy, was in need of a new location. It was decided by the sisters to sell the property to Cathedral High School with the agreement that the school would be co-educational. Several Sisters of Providence remained on the staff of the new school. Ladywood-St. Agnes merged with Cathedral in 1976 after six years of great work.
