Archbishop Lyke School

Archbishop Lyke School was named after the first African American bishop in Cleveland, Archbishop James P. Lyke. It has served the families of the southeast area of Cleveland since 1993, when St. Henry and St. Timothy Schools closed and merged to become Archbishop Lyke School. With the closing of nine other parish schools, it is now the only Catholic elementary school in the southeast area of Cleveland. Archbishop Lyke School is currently a two-campus school under the jurisdiction of the Diocese of Cleveland.
