Catholic school to become a Regina Academy
OTTSVILLE St. John the Baptist School will become a Regina Academy, one of four such schools in the area that teach a "Catholic Classical" education, according to the Archdiocese of Philadelphia.
The other Regina Academies are in Abington, Ardmore, and Downingtown. According to the archdiocese, the curriculum at the schools is "firmly rooted in the magisterial teachings of the Catholic Church. It provides a rigorous liberal arts education that simultaneously deepens students' understanding of their roles as moral and virtuous young people."
The original Regina Coeli Academy was founded in 2003 by a group of Catholics who wanted a return to the ancient, classical liberal-arts education founded on a pursuit of God, providing a thorough grounding in the teachings of the Catholic Church and reflecting the practice of Christian values, according to its website.
