About Scotus Central Catholic High School

The History:

Originally known as the St. Francis Academy, Scotus Central Catholic School is nearly 120 years old. It was established by Fransiscan Sisters.

The Haunting:

The type of paranormal activity that people have experienced here has not been specified, but reports have been made stating that a nun, a young boy, and a student haunt the facility.


There are, according to some reports, said to be tunnels underneath Scotus Central High School. I have not been able to verify this information.

I have also heard reports that the city of Columbus is "built on a cemetery", but I haven't been able to find anything to back up this report either.

i am an upcoming senior this year at scotus, and i too have been in the tunnels. It was my freshman summer that i was in them. I did not see anything or hear anything while i was in them, but i have had some strange things happen to me while in the school. The stale doors in the bathroom of the boys locker room have a distinct sound to them when you shut them, one day i was walking towards the rest room and i heard them slam closed only to find no one in them when i reached them
