Stories of Our Own Saints

Dear Families, There is great truth to be learned in story telling as we all know, and so often in the stories we encounter it is the people who really provoke our hearts and minds. The beauty of a classical education is that we read good stories that captivate the mind and ignite our conscience.But there are also people around us every day, each with their own unique story.

Crossing Threshold of Hope

Dear Families, Faculty, and Patrons, The Paschal narratives are filled with innumerable insights, and even the Gospel writers themselves intentionally emphasize certain revelations about Jesus' final moments on earth.
