No, there were private “other” schools in the South; I think that’s what they mean.
With the exception of Catholic South Louisiana,as well as Florida and Texas, the Bible Belt influence did keep the Catholic population down. However, in the 20th Century, the Catholic Church did build schools everywhere in the United States.
The Sisters of the Blessed Sacrament was able to build schools throughout the South for African Americans because on its members used the Family Fortune to build Catholic Schools. This was Katherine Drexel (now Saint Katherine Drexel).
