Stella Maris Academy – re-envisioning a classical school for San Francisco

Thursday, December 10, 7:00 pm  8:30 pm

Meet the creators of a new Catholic school, and share in the wonder. Hear about the mission to bring truth, beauty, and goodness to students and to parents. All are welcome to join us on Zoom for an inspiring and educational discussion.
Wonder. Joy. Discovery.

These are qualities of the soul that are ablaze in children. Can education that overemphasizes technology and digital learning to the exclusion of inquiry in the liberal arts and sciences feed the soul and shape human character for excellence?

Meet Gavin Colvert, who is re-envisioning the elementary school at Star of the Sea parish in San Francisco as a classical academy. Hear him share the vision. Whether you are a parent, an educator, a student, or a passionate Catholic, you can participate in this exciting journey to create something new for families in the Bay Area.

Meet Michael Ortner, chairman of the board of Cana Academy, former CEO of Capterra Inc., who is a passionate advocate for liberal arts education as a preparation for excellence in industry, science, and technology.

Meet Rosemary Vander Weele, president of Our Lady of Lourdes Classical Academy in Denver, who has successfully transformed a struggling Catholic school into a thriving classical academy.

Join with other San Francisco Catholics who have a passion for Catholic education. Learn more about how beauty, goodness, and truth can ignite and inspire souls for greatness.

Register today to receive the Zoom link on the day of the event. In lieu of a ticket purchase, a $25 donation is asked, if you can reasonably afford it. If not, please come anyway!
