Rosemary Vander Weele on Catholic Education

June 22, 2021

Rosemary Vander Weele joins Dr. Tim Gray on the Augustine Institute Show to discuss classical Catholic education. Ten years ago, Rosemary transformed a Catholic school in Denver, Colorado that was once losing enrollment, morale, and its Catholic identity. By introducing children to an authentic Catholic education, empowering families to create a domestic Church in their homes, and supporting teachers, Catholic schools can have a lasting impact on the Church and the world. Dr. Gray and Rosemary Vander Weele discuss the value of excellent children's formation in school and the pedagogy of classical education.
