PRINCIPAL'S NOTES

 Addressing Racism

Saint Charles Preparatory School affirms a pledge of solidarity with all those who oppose racism, discrimination, and oppression, and who work to peaceably bring about its end. Racist ideology runs contrary to the enduring teachings of the Catholic Church on human dignity. As Pope Francis spoke on this topic: “We cannot close our eyes to any form of racism or exclusion while pretending to defend the sacredness of human life.”

Likewise, racist ideology runs contrary to the very foundations of Saint Charles: to our Core Values of Diversity, Character, Mercy, and Solidarity; to our Vision, which aims to develop young men for lives of contribution, service, and leadership—consistent with the teachings of Jesus Christ in the Catholic tradition; and to our Founding Promise, which guarantees an exceptional education to every young man willing to accept the challenge of studying at Saint Charles, regardless of his background or means.

 

School Notes

St. John’s Community Kitchen Advent Collections: The St. Charles Student Council will hold its annual Advent collection for St. John’s Community kitchen on Wednesdays and Fridays during class lunch periods. Gifts of cash and checks will be accepted.

Holy Spirit Parish Giving Tree: Children’s gloves, mittens, and hats are being collected during the course of Advent and will be dispersed to the children of Holy Spirit School and parish on Dec. 17th.

WHAT DOES ST. CHARLES HAVE TO OFFER YOUR SON?

 

BUILDING LEADERS FOR
THE NEXT 100 YEARS

Join Us In Building The Vision For The Future

“To  this  day, my core group of friends remains those from St. Charles and whenever we get together we share and laugh about memories from our time there.

Specific things I recall are beating our league rival in soccer,  praying before every class, learning from Sister Margaret the format for writing a paper (which I still use to this day), taking exams in the multi-purpose room, developing the study and time-management skills that I have applied in college and the rest of my life."
--Jay Knox, Class of 2006

"Our family strongly supports quality Catholic education. We believe in setting high expectations for our children so they are empowered to achieve great things.

St Charles provides our sons with a supportive  environment that encourages hard work and perseverance. We have seen first-hand the growth and development of our three sons from young boys to men who are strong in their faith, active in the community and prepared for college. Our sons have benefited from the brotherhood of St Charles. It is entwined into the fabric and culture of the school and all of its families.

Most importantly, we have developed friendships that will last a lifetime.”
--Christopher and Karen Eramo

“My four years at St. Charles have provided me with a solid foundation built upon principles of faith, brotherhood, academic excellence and discipline.

I am confident that I am leaving St. Charles with the skills and experience needed to be a leader of consequence wherever life takes me.”
--Anthony Castrodale, Class of 2017
