My Alma Mater Saint Agnes Schools in Saint Paul (USA)

"I visited my old high school St. Agnes this afternoon including its new wing built where the old gymnasium / auditorium used to be. Truly impressive changes from top to bottom, the structure merely the shell housing a rigorous academic and spiritual core. The curriculum is now classically-oriented and Latin is taught to all younger students, and there is even a year of Greek available as an elective for seniors. Choir is as accomplished as ever, with a strong band complementing it.  Crucifixes and other Catholic devotional effects are in every classroom, total school enrollment K-12 is up to nearly 800 from substantially less than that when I attended, and everyone seems on board with the direction of the school. Nice to see a few of my old teachers too. God bless St. Agnes in its continued faithful pursuit of a true counter-cultural Christian witness in both liturgy and education! May many souls be positively influenced by its witness!"
