Students of the Schola Thomas Morus are being shown their new school building under contsruction

Already in July 2016 the Board of Trustees of the International Theological Institute (ITI) agreed, with the strong support of the Archbishop of Vienna and Grand Chancellor of the ITI Cardinal Christoph Schönborn, to as of September 2017 rent out long-term the previously unused campus building to the Catholic High School (Gymnasium) that was founded in 2013 by a number of people associated with the ITI.

The new school building will be completed in two phases, financed entirely by donors of the Schola Thomas Morus, comprising of 11 classrooms, offices, mensa facilities and all spaces that are needed for a secondary school, including a generous outside sports facility.

The Schola Thomas Morus is a fully independent private Catholic school in the classical liberal arts tradition. Many children of ITI families also attend the school that is currently located in Baden bei Wien. The Schola Thomas Morus urgently needed a new location due to its fast growth in student numbers. Children from the whole of the metropolitan area of Vienna attend the school, some traveling as much as three hours a day to be able to attend the school.
