The End of Gateway Academy?
I have read (so-far) uncorroborated rumors on two blogs, and received some emails, to the effect that Gateway Academy is to close.
I hesitated to post on just that much information, but apparently there could be an announcement as early as tomorrow.
This is really a shame on several levels. There was much promise in the Legion and the school, and it all goes down with the shameful activity of the founder to whom they attached their wagon.
I don't want to turn this into a Legion post; I would instead focus on two things:
1) The need for a Catholic high school in this town that is orthodox in its catechesis, and excellent in its academics.
2) Catholicism is not just a set of doctrines to which one must give intellectual assent, but rather a way of living, worshipping and praying that informs, and is informed by, those doctrines. Lex orandi, lex credendi.
