From an email sent to me by one of the organizers of the school:
Welcome to The St. Austin School
It is with great joy that we share the exciting news that 54 children are currently enrolled in the St. Austin School! Our sincere thanks to all who have been praying for guidance in the decision-making process and ultimately for God's will to be done with respect to this school. His hand has guided us over the first hurdle and we move forward with faith and confidence.
There are many families who have just recently heard about the school and have expressed interest. Please note that enrollment will be capped at 80 children with 5th and 6th grade already nearing capacity. If you, or someone you know, may be interested please contact us immediately so we can organize another informational gathering.
St. Austin School families will receive an email by tomorrow evening announcing our first organizational meeting to determine where peoples' talents and interests lie.
Again, our most sincere thanks to all who are supporting this effort; the families who have taken the leap of faith to enroll their children and the countless others who are with us in spirit. May God bless you all!
"Trust in the LORD with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths." (Proverbs 3:5-6)
