    Ben, thanks for the very informative video! I’ve known of St. John Bosco School, but have never seen the teaching dynamics and the mission for these children. Very encouraging!

    Does anybody know if there is a possibility of a similar K-8 school being set up in Buffalo? The diocese is prepared to unveil some new plans this week but I fear it may involve more bad decisions on their part.

    SuburbanDad – yes, it’s possible. The folks that created this school put everything they had into it. It was an impossible task only made possible by hard work, sacrifice, and much prayer. As more schools are built using this grass-roots model, there are becoming more patterns to follow and more guidance to be offered. I was talking with someone the other day about why I send my kid here instead of homeschooling. I shared my opinion that a good Catholic school is the ideal – not homeschooling. I think there is too much group think in the homeschooling movement today – as if it’s the ideal. I mean, it is certainly a good option and often times the best one in certain circumstances, but I don’t think it’s the ideal. And then the other options of either public schools or Catholic schools that are basically public schools that don’t hate on God – I can’t really tell them apart (not knocking these options – in certain situations and circumstances I could see these being good options)… my point is that Catholic schools who measure themselves by public standards and setting themselves up for failure. The point is – yes, it’s possible. If you would’ve asked folks on the sidelines observing the beginnings of St. John Bosco school whether they’d “make it”, many would’ve told you there was not a chance.

    Thanks, Ben! Do you have a point of contact? They just closed 10 schools with a lot being South of the City so now’s a good chance for lay Catholics to take up the challenge of giving their children an orthodox Catholic education.
