Religious education at the Academy is dedicated to fostering a dialogue between the Catholic intellectual tradition and all areas of contemporary culture through thoughtful reflection and academic research. Middle school students conclude their annual religion classes by journeying throughout the Hebrew Bible and concluding with the rich tradition of Catholic Social Justice.
