“As the family goes, so goes the nation and so goes the whole world in which we live.”
— Saint John Paul II
At Martin Saints Classical High School (MSC), we have created a new Catholic high school at Holy Martyrs Church in Oreland, a suburb north of Philadelphia, PA. We want to create a community - a family of families - under the patronage and protection of the Martin saints, believing that we are all - parents and children alike - called to become saints in and through the challenges of ordinary family life. MSC will be a community of ordinary people who aim high.
We have started MSC because educating children is an essential part of what it means to be a parent. School is not the only thing or even the main thing in family life, but teaching our children to know what is true, good and beautiful is part of every parent's vocation. At MSC, teachers and parents work together to introduce our children to Jesus and the Church, and to seek excellence in our children's moral and academic formation.
