Honor Scholarships of St. John's Villa Students
0 have signed. Let’s get to 200!
We are writing in light of the recent announcement of St. John Villa’s closing. This loss of our Catholic School community is truly a sad announcement for all St. Joseph Hill Academy’s alumni. It disheartens us most to hear the stories of Villa’s students who are scholarship recipients whose families are facing the reality of the termination of their children’s Catholic educations. School choice is extremely important for all school-aged children and adolescents, and especially so for those who strive to maintain Catholic values as central to education.
The Daughters of Divine Charity began their ministry in New York by welcoming young women with limited financial means to live and learn a Catholic life with them. We believe that, in keeping with the charitable values of the Daughters of Divine Charity, St. Joseph Hill Academy should consider honoring the scholarships of the students of St. John Villa Academy at the high school and elementary school levels.
Other Catholic schools such as Bishop Kearney High School in Brooklyn have publicly come forward to welcome St. John Villa Academy’s students into their family and have pledged to honor the scholarships of those who were receiving them.
We urge you to consider our request and to encourage other Catholic schools in the area to follow suit.
