Catholic Schools Week is well underway at Our Lady of Hope. In celebration of our teachers who have dedicated years (25 years and 50 years) of their life to Catholic education, Bishop Michael J. Fitzgerald will lead a celebration Mass for these teachers hitting these milestones.
Yes, it’s January, and the end of summer and back to school season is months away, but it’s never too early to think ahead. Register or re-register your children for the next school year today! The earlier you get it done, the less you’ll have to worry about as the new school year at Our Lady of Hope approaches.
For years, educators, politicians, school administrators and more have pondered what is the secret to success in schools that carries on throughout life. Kathleen Porter-Magee, the superintendent at Partnership Schools in New York City, determined that the “secret sauce” for Catholic schools is the way Catholic values are woven into the curriculum within Catholic schools. Let’s take a closer look at how this claim might ring true...
Our Lady of Hope welcomes new and returning students for another exciting school year! We know the transition from the dog days of summer to a new school year can be daunting, but our faculty and staff are ready to make learning each subject fun and exciting! Your child’s teacher is dedicated to your students every need, and we have various resources to allow your child the well-rounded education to succeed starting early in life.
For some, it might be a little early to think about high school for your child. For others, the prospect is rapidly approaching. Cristo Rey High School in Philadelphia, a Catholic high school among the Cristo Rey network, might be the right choice for your child(ren).
As you consider the costs and benefits of your child’s educational options, look deeply into the performance of your local charter schools. Find out if they are accredited. Ask about their charter renewal. Compare standardized test scores, graduation rates, scholarship dollars and programs available to make the best choice possible.
