This is a hidden gem for boys aspiring to be catholic gentlemen. This is an extraordinary opportunity for young men to reach the heights of Catholicism and understand what it truly means to be chivalrous!

All five of my sons attended St. Louis De Montfort Academy. I cannot adequately express the gratitude of my wife and I for the education, character and religious formation my sons received there. So many parents try to raise their children the right way and then one day their children leave the faith. St. Louis De Montfort Academy did such an excellent job of instilling Catholic values as well as religious zeal that all of our sons are faithful and zealous practitioners of their faith. One of my sons liked his experiences there so much that he ended up returning as an instructor. St. Louis De Montfort Academy is comprised of staff who are incredibly dedicated to the formation of youth.I once spoke to a priest who oversaw the religious program that the Academy uses (Seton). He told me in person that he used the papers submitted by the Academy Students to be the high water mark for essays because they were so excellent.Besides academics, even more importantly is the character formation. Students learn to live a chivalrous life, with faith, courtesy, respect, and the willingness to defend their faith with good apologetics training and action.If you want your son to receive an excellent faith experience, religious, educational and cultural formation then St. Louis De Montfort is worth considering.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
Now that school has safely reopened, what can we parents do to support and encourage the schools we care about so much?
