This is Richmond's only Catholic "classical curriculum". Singapore math, Latin starts in 1st, rhetoric, logic, Excellence in Writing program, quality literature, Shurley Grammar, history (not social studies), daily music, outstanding art, iPads, Spanish, cursive, an integrated curriculum, & instruction in Trivium (grammar, logic, rhetoric stages of learning). To parents who are discriminating, THIS IS THE PLACE FOR YOU. Faith instruction at heart of learning environment. Almost all teachers are Catholic; important for handing down the faith. Monthly virtue winners are voted on among the students; discipline program great. To those who say, not enough sports , I say, that s not why you pick a school ; it s is about training kids hearts and minds for adult life. Do sports thru Y or club teams! Chastity program = awesome. Children eat in a dining hall, say prayers thru-out day. Lunch provided by organic caterer. Faculty - hard-pressed to find more qualified group; credentials on web. Parish s pastor is man on a mission to make school a diocesan/national flagship. The principal is a true leader; humble devout man. The school values all the right things. Truly a best-kept secret.
