School is much more than numbers and letters. Elementary school, especially, is a special time of emotional, social and ethical development, and we find our family values supported at Bishop Marshall. Grace’s lessons at school focus on love, peace, and respecting self and others. Call it what you will – the Catholic ingredient perhaps. For our family, it is basic and human: be kind, be gracious, be generous and enjoy life.

When Livia finished sixth grade in public school, we were determined to find her a place where she could be met where she is. Her experience there was inadequate. Her need for more stimulation and creativity were forced into a “disability” viewpoint. The best thing we did was take BJAMS up on the offer of having Livia shadow a student for a day, just to check it out. With fingers crossed we dropped her off. She was so welcomed and involved that when we picked her up “it had been the best day since kindergarten.” She now had a real experience to base a decision on, rather than what she had heard. From there we enrolled her in seventh grade. The result? She loves it!
