Why is St. Francis College Prep Critical to Our Community?

St-Francis-blog-whyMartin Luther King, Jr. said, “Intelligence plus character, that is the goal of true education.” In other words, to really educate a person we must address the intellect AND we must address the spirit or soul, or that part of a person where his or her character resides. Why is this necessary?

President Theodore Roosevelt said it best, “To educate a person in the mind but not in morals is to educate a menace to society.” In short, to teach young men and women volumes of information in the moral vacuum of secularism leads to an amoral use of that information and the degradation of culture. We are seeing this happening all around us today.

St. Francis College Prep understands the need for Christian education to repair the ruins of today’s culture. Christian education allows students to understand the need for learning fully integrated in the light of faith.
Through such instruction St. Francis College Prep will produce young men and women who desire to use their gifts and knowledge to promote truth, beauty, and goodness here and abroad . . . and this is why St. Francis College Prep is critical to our community.
