Charles East High School is located at 1020 Dunham Road in St. Charles, Illinois. At one time it was the only high school serving the city of St. Charles. Prior to moving to its current location in 1977, the high school was located in the middle of town at the corner of Main Street and Seventh Street, in the building that now serves as Thompson Middle School; the new St. Charles High School campus was built in the open fields to the east of Dunham Road, adjacent to the existing Norris Recreation Center and Dunham Junior High School; the campus change was not made without controversy – the old downtown campus was an "open" campus that allowed the student body to depart and return during the school day, while the new campus is "closed". The first month in the new school featured student protests, leaky roofs, problems with the school's state-of-the-art solar heating system; the first class to graduate after attending all four years at the newly built high school was the class of 1981. In the year 2000, due to increasing population in the area, District 303 was split between two high schools, St. Charles High School was renamed St. Charles East High School..
The first class to graduate after attending all four years at the renamed school graduated in 2004. The Saint Charles East High School campus includes the Norris Cultural Arts Center, the Norris Recreation Center; these facilities were established to serve not only the high school but the community as well. The Delora A. Norris Cultural Arts Center, a 1,000-seat performing arts theater and art gallery, was founded in 1978 with funding from the St. Charles Charities, created in 1924 by Lester and Delora Norris and Edward Baker. During spring break in 2001, a serious black mol
Charles Borromeo was Roman Catholic archbishop of Milan from 1564 to 1584 and a cardinal. He was a leading figure of the Counter-Reformation combat against the Protestant Reformation together with St. Ignatius of Loyola and St. Philip Neri. In that role he was responsible for significant reforms in the Catholic Church, including the founding of seminaries for the education of priests, he is honored as a saint by the Roman Catholic Church, with a feast day on November 4. Charles was a descendant of nobility: the Borromeo family was one of the most ancient and wealthy in Lombardy, made famous by several notable men, both in the church and state; the family coat of arms included the Borromean rings, which are sometimes taken to symbolize the Holy Trinity. Charles' father Gilbert was Count of Arona, his mother Margaret was a member of the Milan branch of the House of Medici. The third son in a family of six children, he was born in the castle of Arona on Lake Maggiore 36 miles from Milan on 2 October 1538.
Borromeo received the tonsure. At this time his paternal uncle Giulio Cesare Borromeo turned over to him the income from the rich Benedictine abbey of Sts. Gratinian and Felin, one of the ancient perquisites of the family. Charles made plain to his father that all revenues from the abbey beyond what was required to prepare him for a career in the Church belonged to the poor and could not be applied to secular use; the young man attended the University of Pavia, where he applied himself to the study of civil and canon law. Due to a slight impediment of speech he was regarded as slow but his thoroughness and industry meant that he made rapid progress. In 1554 his father died, although he had an elder brother, Count Federico, he was requested by the family to take the management of their domestic affairs. After a time, he resumed his studies, on 6 December 1559 he earned a doctorate in canon and civil law. On 25 December 1559 Borromeo's uncle Cardinal Giovanni Angelo Medici was elected as Pope Pius IV.
The newly-elected pope required his nephew to come to Rome, on 13 January 1560 appointed him protonotary apostolic. Shortly thereafter, on 31 January 1560, the pope created him cardinal, thus Charles as cardinal-nephew was entrusted with both the public and the privy seal of the ecclesiastical state, he was brought into the government of the Papal States and appointed supervisor of the Franciscans and Knights of Malta. During his four years in Rome Borromeo lived in austerity, obliged the Roman Curia to wear black, established an academy of learned persons, the Academy of the Vatican Nights, publishing their memoirs as the Noctes Vaticanae. Charles organized the third and last session of the Council of Trent, in 1562-63, he had a large share in the making of the Tridentine Catechism. In 1561, Borromeo founded and endowed a college at Pavia, today known as Almo Collegio Borromeo, which he dedicated to St. Justina of Padua. On 19 November 1562, his older brother, Federico died, his family urged Charles to leave the church to marry and have children, so that the family name would not become extinct, but he decided not to leave the ecclesiastic state.
His brother's death, along with his contacts with the Jesuits and the Theatines and the example of bishops such as Bartholomew of Braga, were the causes of a conversion of Charles towards a more strict and operative Christian life, his aim became to put into practice the dignity and duties of the bishop as drafted by the recent Council of Trent. Charles was appointed administrator of the Archdiocese of Milan on 7 February 1560. After his decision to put into practice the role of bishop, he decided to be ordained priest and on 7 December 1563 he was consecrated bishop in the Sistine Chapel by Cardinal Giovanni Serbelloni. Charles was formally appointed archbishop of Milan on 12 May 1564 after the former archbishop Ippolito II d'Este waived his claims on that archbishopric, but he was only allowed by the pope to leave Rome one year later. Charles made his formal entry into Milan as archbishop on 23 September 1565. After the death of his uncle, Pius IV, Charles contributed materially to suppressing the cabals of the conclave.
Before Charles went to Milan, while he was overseeing reform in Rome, a nobleman remarked that the latter city was no longer a place to enjoy oneself or to make a fortune. "Carlo Borromeo has undertaken to remake the city from top to bottom," he said, predicting that the reformer's enthusiasm "would lead him to correct the rest of the world once he has finished with Rome."Subsequently, he devoted himself to the reformation of his diocese which had deteriorated in practice owing to the 80-year absence of previous archbishops. Milan was the largest archdiocese in Italy at the time, with more than 3,000 clergy and 800,000 people. Both its clergy and laity had drifted from church teaching; the selling of indulgences and ecclesiastical positions was prevalent. Charles made numerous pastoral visits, restored dignity to divine service, he urged churches to be designed in conformity with the decrees of the Council of Trent, which stated that sacred art and architecture lacking adequate scriptural foundation was in effect prohibited, as was any inclusion of classical pagan elements in religious art.
He divided the nave of the church into two compartments to separate the sexes at worship. He extended his reforms to the collegiate churches, monasteries and to the Confraternities of Penitents that of St. John the Baptist; this group was to attend to prisoners and those condemned to death, to give them help and suppor

St. Charles, Illinois
St. Charles is a city in DuPage and Kane counties in the U. S. state of Illinois. It lies 40 miles west of Chicago on Illinois Route 64; as of the 2010 census the population was 32,974, as of 2017 the population had dropped to an estimated 32,714. The official city slogan is "Pride of the Fox", after the Fox River that runs through the center of town. St. Charles is part of a tri-city area along with Geneva and Batavia, all western suburbs of similar size and relative socioeconomic condition. St. Charles was the location of the Native American community for the chief of the Pottawatomie that inhabited the area. A city park overlooking the river was dedicated to this Native American past. After the Black Hawk War in 1832, the entire area of the Fox Valley was opened to American settlement. Evan Shelby and William Franklin staked the first claim in what is now St. Charles in 1833, they came back in 1834 with their families from Indiana, were joined by over a dozen other families that year. The township was known as Charleston, but this name was taken by the downstate city of Charleston, Illinois so the name of St. Charles was adopted in 1839.
St. Charles became incorporated as a city February 9, 1839 and reincorporated October 17, 1874. Several "stations" of the slavery-era Underground Railroad were in St. Charles homes, complete with tunnels and false doorways. Most accounts lead back to a local blacksmith who set up shop in a building now known as 305 W Main St; this was most "the hub," This address is the easiest to visit from the dozen "stations" known. As of 2015 a fine dining establishment holds residence at that address bearing a name in honor of that Blacksmith. St. Charles was a isolated place early on in its existence; the village was located three days away from Chicago, the Fox River was not navigable for large boats. By the 1850s, St. Charles had begun construction of a plank road to Sycamore but turned down an offer by the Galena and Chicago Union Railroad to construct a line through the town, built in nearby Elgin. Lack of regional connections in the early years kept the town small. St. Charles was without a railroad until 1871 when a branch line from Geneva was constructed, was without a direct connection to Chicago until the 1880s with the coming of the Chicago Great Western Railway.
Streetcar lines along the Fox River between Elgin and Aurora were built through the city in 1896, operated by the Aurora and Fox River Electric company. A direct automobile route to Chicago, which became Route 64, was constructed in 1920. Four Illinois state routes, including Routes 38, 25 and 31 now run through the city.

St. Charles Avenue
St. Charles Avenue is a thoroughfare in New Orleans, Louisiana, U. S. and the home of the St. Charles Streetcar Line, it is famous for the dozens of mansions that adorn the tree-lined boulevard for much of the uptown section of the boulevard. The Southern live oak trees, plentiful in the historic Garden District, were planted during the early twentieth century. Similar additions were made on other major New Orleans streets, such as Carrollton Avenue, Napoleon Avenue, part of Canal Street, becoming one of the city's most memorable features. St. Charles Avenue is one of the chief Mardi Gras parade routes; the "downriver" end meets Canal Street. On the other side of Canal Street in the French Quarter, the corresponding street is Royal Street. From Canal Street, St. Charles runs up through the New Orleans Central Business District the length of Uptown New Orleans, reflecting the crescent curve of the Mississippi River but at a distance inland, it continues to the Carrollton neighborhood, ending one block past Carrollton Avenue where it intersects with Leake Street/River Road at the foot of the Mississippi River levee.
From Canal Street to Lee Circle, St. Charles Avenue is properly called St. Charles Street and is one way in the upriver direction with two lanes of traffic, with the streetcar track sharing right-of-way with one lane of motor vehicle traffic. From Lee Circle to Louisiana Avenue it has two lanes of traffic in each direction with two streetcar rail lines on the grassy tree-lined median. From Louisiana Avenue to Carrollton Avenue it has one lane of traffic in each direction plus the streetcar neutral ground; the streetcar line turns inland at Carrollton Avenue to follow the thoroughfare, while the final stretch continues the final short block to River Road. Major intersections, from east to west, include: Canal Street, Poydras Street, Lee Circle/Howard Avenue, Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard/Melpomene Avenue, Jackson Avenue, Washington Avenue, Louisiana Avenue, Napoleon Avenue, Jefferson Avenue, Nashville Avenue, Broadway Street, Carrollton Avenue, Leake Avenue. For the first half of the 19th century, the portion of St. Charles above Lee Circle was known as Nyades Street.
The lower portion is an important corridor in the Central Business District. Historically-significant buildings include Gallier Hall, City Hall until the 1950s; the street was laid out atop a slight rise, the remains of an old natural levee, in connection with the construction of the New Orleans and Carrollton Railroad, which became the St. Charles Streetcar Line; the long traffic avenue used for horse-drawn buggies and wagons, with public rail transit running down the center, helped fuel the development of Uptown in the 19th century. In 1889, writer Martha R. Field observed that "St. Charles Avenue is seven miles long, is paved with asphalt its entire length" and was lined "with beautiful homes." St. Charles Avenue was the favored site for construction of mansions by the wealthy from the mid 19th century through the early years of the 20th century. A number of the old mansions were torn down in the mid- and late 20th century, until the area was declared an historic district. Many of the surviving ones have been divided into rental apartments.
In early 1999, an effort by the New Orleans Police Department was made to clean up the Avenue and the blocks north, which were beginning to show signs of seediness. The illegal drug industry was pushed back into Central City. During the 2005 flooding of the majority of New Orleans due to levee failures caused by Hurricane Katrina, St. Charles Avenue and the portion of Uptown closer to the Mississippi River escaped significant flooding. Notable buildings along St. Charles Avenue include several hotels the most famous still in business being the Pontchartrain Hotel, in business since 1927; the Columns Hotel is a small hotel in a 19th-century mansion. The St. Charles Hotel, near Canal Street, was one of the city's two most well-known hotels through most of the 19th and early 20th centuries; the former Bienville Hotel on Lee Circle is now an apartment building. The headquarters of the United Fruit Company was on St. Charles Avenue in the Central Business District; the former mansion of silent-film star Marguerite Clark is now the Milton Latter Memorial branch of the New Orleans Public Library.
