Parents and interested community members expressed a desire for an all-male college prep learning environment for middle school-aged boys to help with their spiritual and educational journey. This last school year was St. Francis’ first year providing a 7th and 8th grade curriculum.
Kicking off the school year at Camp de Sales in Michigan, the retreat allowed students the opportunity to bond, while being physically and spiritually active, says Fr. Joseph Newman, director of admissions.
St. Francis de Sales said, “Be who you are and be that well.” The pre-teen and teen years are when young people are developing their identity and sense of self while testing the boundaries, so offering 7th and 8th grade classes is a natural fit.
