Dear School Community,

We are excited to announce that Bishop Knestout has formally recognized Cardinal Newman Academy as a Catholic school in the Diocese of Richmond. This is the culmination of many years of hard work by many people. As Bishop Knestout stated in his letter to us:

“The dedication and arduous work that has been demonstrated in reaching this goal is evident in all that has been accomplished in a relatively brief time. The vision for the school, centered on Christ, is a public witness to our Catholic faith and culture, and it is vitally important in the lives of our young people. Their formation in faith and education will serve them well, and in so doing, hopefully will serve the diocese and the entire community.”

We are grateful to our faculty and families and our many supporters who have made this occasion possible. Since our founding, Cardinal Newman Academy has eagerly anticipated official recognition as being in union with our bishop and the universal Church. We are grateful to Bishop Knestout and the Office of Catholic Education for helping us achieve this important milestone and for recognizing the dedication and sacrifices of the many contributors who helped us get to this point.

In Christ,

Devon King

Head of School
