One of the best Christmas gifts can be a Catholic education for your children. They will thank you for it and it is a lasting treasure for their souls.

This Catholic school can provide your child(ren) the opportunity to grow with Christ at a time when they are most vulnerable to influence and temptation.

She describes what she sees that warms her heart while witnessing the faith development. This growth prepares children for life.  She also explains the practical side and the benefits of uniforms. She along with other guests from the school speak on our show.

When you listen to the radio show & podcast you will hear about so many great topics to help you in your decision, such as their unique Spanish class, art projects, small class sizes, and the S.T.E.M. classes for science and math. Ms. Paulina, their Spanish Teacher is pictured above.
