John Henry Newman

John Henry Newman was a convert to Catholicism and an influential writer, preacher, and theologian.

Cardinal Newman is highly regarded for his vision of education, especially as articulated in his The Idea of a University.

Cardinal Newman exemplified a tradition of “gentle scholarship, deep human wisdom and profound love for the Lord.” He lived a life of holiness and virtue and contributed immeasurably to the work of evangelization and education in the modern world.

For his intellectual and spiritual virtues, John Henry Newman is a superlative role model for both a school and its students.

“He sought to achieve an educational environment in which intellectual training, moral discipline and religious commitment would come together.”
