Each talk will begin at 6:30 p.m. in the Nolan Catholic Library. 

Talks are free and open to the public. Space is limited to 150 seats per session. Please enroll for sessions individually.

MARK I: Forming Students for Life

Inspired by a supernatural vision, classical education not only prepares students for higher education, career, and family but also for responding to God’s call.

MARK II: Teaching the whole child

Guided by a sound understanding of what it means to be human and respective of the development of the child, classical education teaches children in the ways they best learn, following the classical modes of learning: grammar, logic, and rhetoric.

MARK III: The role of the community 

Rooted in a genuine community of faith, classical education fosters unity between parents, schools, and the Church and also expresses this communion in faith through the sacramental nature of the physical environment.

MARK IV: Catholicism throughout the curriculum

To have a Catholic worldview is to see the world as God created it and as He continues to sustain it. The curriculum is imbued with this Catholic worldview so that students will wonder and see God’s Truth, Goodness, and Beauty throughout their studies.

MARK V: Sustaining a Gospel witness

Being Christian is the result of an encounter with Christ. School faculty and staff provide a vital witness to Christian life and, in doing so, foster the school climate that assists students with encountering Christ and growing in His Life.​
