The Theology Department at Cardinal Newman High School seeks to provide for our students a foundational experience of developing both their faith and reason. We follow the lead of our patron St. John Henry Cardinal Newman who wrote that: “A great memory does not make a mind, any more than a dictionary is a piece of literature.” More than minimally recalling information, we strive to inspire our students to critically explore and put into practice the rich deposit of faith of the Catholic Tradition that has been passed on to us since the time of Jesus. We not only foster an opportunity of academic rigor, but we also emphasize the importance of developing as people of prayer. The foundational curriculum texts that we use are from Ave Maria Press and follow the U.S. Bishops Curriculum Framework and all students are required to complete four full years of theology to graduate. Additionally, in keeping with the school’s Mission Statement and Philosophy, all students must participate in a minimum of 25 hours of community service each year they are enrolled.
