Back to School Message from the Headmaster

Dear Families, First off, I just want to thank you all for your patience and positive feedback as we begin another school year. On the first day of school the student body gathered to pray a rosary. As we were praying the rosary, I asked Our Lady for inspiration. It occurred to me that I had nothing prepared to say to the students, and then suddenly it hit me - dynamics and dignity.

In spite of outward changes, the inward dignity of each chi...

Pope Francis Comments on Educational Mission of Families and Schools in Wednesday Audience

Students Rise to the Occasion with Sensational Science Fair
