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.
