St. Louis County (KSDK) - There are allegations of sexual abuse surrounding two former teachers of Chaminade College Preparatory in St. Louis County.

A graduate of the Marianist-sponsored school came forward a few months ago.

He claims he was sexually abused by Brother Louis Mainhardt and Brother John Woulfe in the 1970s. Both brothers have passed away.

More than 16,000 letters went out last month to Chaminade alums asking any more victims to come forward.

At least 15 more alums reported witnessing or experiencing abusive behavior.

The Marianist Province Review Board believes the allegations are credible, and the board says it will continue to investigate every allegation made.
