The NY Post published an opinion piece by Kathleen Porter-Magee. She is the superintendent of Partnership schools in the New York area, a group of Catholic schools in Harlem and the Bronx. Ozark Catholic Academy’s diverse student body does not mirror the urban students of New York, but the foundation of Catholic Education is the same. The integration and formation of the whole person.
Here are a couple of quotes that stand out:
“…Catholic schools seek to form students with the habits of virtue that help them choose to do good. To that end, Catholic schools emphasize that freedom comes with responsibility, with actions consequences.”
“Catholic schools profess that truth is objective and that one goal of education is the search for objective truths. This informs students about the merits of civic engagement, commitment to family and devotion to Almighty God.”
