Two new schools are coming to Wellington County.

The Upper Grand District School Board announced Thursday they are proceeding with their South Guelph Secondary School and Centre Wellington Elementary School projects.

Both have been given the stamp of approval, as well as additional funding, from the Ministry of Education.

While the building permits were approved for the Centre Wellington project, the school board says it's still working to obtain one for the Guelph site.

The board, however, expects the elementary school to open in time for the 2025/2026 school year and the high school to be open in September 2026.

The Fergus school will be located at the corner of Elliot Avenue and Kirvan Street, while the other will be built in south Guelph, at the corner of Victoria Road South and Arkell Road.
