“I just got my first serious paper back in college, a 13-page research paper for my writing class, and I got a perfect score. My professor told me I had one of the best research papers in the class. This research paper is essentially the equivalent of a final and determines if you pass the class or not. It reminded me of the essay I wrote for your class on Grey’s Elegy, and the feedback you gave me: Omit needless words.”
“If you look up a president or a famous person, it’s easy to find where they went to college. Where someone went to elementary and high school stops mattering once they go to college. But I think the most formative part of my education has probably already happened. In college and probably for the rest of my life, my decisions will be largely influenced by my time at St Monica Academy.”
“At first, I thought the motto of SMA, Faith, Reason, Virtue would be taught to me through the academics I studied, but I have found that it is through the people that surround the school that I have learned and come to believe in it.”
St. Monica Academy is at the forefront of a renaissance in classical education, a time-honored method of teaching that inspires students to excel academically and morally. Founded by parents in 2001, and accredited by WASC and WCEA, the school provides students in grades 1-12 with an academically rigorous education using a classical curriculum.
St. Monica Academy is one of the few schools in the country to be recognized as a Catholic Education Honor Roll School by the Cardinal Newman Society.
