One of the most encouraging signs of renewed vitality of Catholic education is the recent growth of classical education at the elementary and secondary levels of education. The Classical Curriculum integrates the best of our Catholic tradition into all subjects, developing rigorous critical thinking skills and yielding impressive standardized test scores.

I am convinced that classical education holds out the greatest hope for our children’s future flourishing and for renewal of Church life. I am delighted to see that such a school opened last year at Star of the Sea parish here in San Francisco, Stella Maris Academy for preschool through 8th grade. I hope that we will be able to open more Classical Academies in the Archdiocese of San Francisco in the coming years, and I encourage you to consider enrolling your children at Stella Maris Academy.

So enjoying our participation in this year’s national conference via livestream. Thank you ICLE at The Catholic University of America #catholicuniversity
Did you know Pope St. John Paul II wrote a Stella Maris prayer? Mary, Star of the Sea, light of every ocean, guide seafarers across all dark and stormy seas that they may reach the haven of peace and light prepared in Him who calmed the sea.
As we set forth upon the oceans of the world and cross the deserts of our time, show us, O Mary, the fruit of your womb, for without your Son we are lost.

Pray that we will never fail on life’s journey, that in heart and mind, work and deed, in days of turmoil and in days of calm, we will always look to Christ and say, “Who is this that even wind and sea obey him?” Our Lady of Peace, pray for us! Bright Star of the Sea, guide us!

Our Lady, Star of the Sea, pray for seafarers, pray for us. #summer #classical school
From our SMA family to yours, Happy 4th of July! 🇺🇸🎆 #godblessamerica #patriots

Happy Father’s Day to all the Stella Maris Academy dads. May the good St. Joseph, patron of our school, bless you this day and always.
The logic stage of classical education is highlighted by the ability to analyze and reason critically. Chess is a fun and engaging way for students to practice these skills - even at recess! #classicalschool #chessforkids #logic
