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.

  1. There are tunnels under Scotus. I can assure you of this. Also, there have been reports of chairs that were stacked on the tables beginning to shake and then fall off the table. Ceiling tiles have been reported to rattle, also. Several teachers have reported seeing a woman sitting on the widow sill at the end of the hallway at night.
