I went to Mount Carmel Academy. All the Catholic Schools in The New Orleans Metro area will send any student to a special campus for pregnant girls while they are expecting. After the student gives birth, they are allowed to return to school. This has been the practice for years, and it is good because the other young students may perceive that the pregnant girl is getting more attention etc. and it may be a distraction. The student is not expelled, because this may prompt the girl to have an abortion- which the catholic church does not condone. The girls I knew who became pregnant while attending Catholic School were always allowed to return after their baby was born.
