A Case for Classical Education

Here is a great little article in First Things about the plight of Catholic diocesan schools in America, and how independent Catholic schools which focus on providing a classical Catholic education are providing the viable path for Catholic education.

The Lyceum was specifically mentioned as a school forging the way!

“At first schools like the Lyceum Academy in Cleveland, Ohio and St. Augustine Academy in Ventura, California, were considered outsiders and even threats to the Catholic educational establishment. But the evident successes of these schools in forming strong Catholic academic communities with students knowledgeable about their faith, their Church, and Christian civilization have led pastors, bishops, and superintendents to open their arms toward these schools.”

Fiat Lux!
