On January 21, 2008, St. John’s welcomed a guest speaker, Mr. Bryan Smith, the headmaster of St. Peter’s Classical Christian Academy in Fort Worth, Texas. St. Peter’s is a small K-12 Orthodox Christian day school like St. John’s, and consequenlty Mr. Smith had a good perspective on the kind of school we are. After visiting classes during the school day, he spoke to the faculty about character education and the importance of thoughts, words, and deeds in the development of good habits. During the evening, Mr. Smith spoke to the parents about the state of American education today and the challenges and benefits of small, private, Christian schools like St. Peter’s and St. John’s. His talk was followed by a lively question and answer session that everyone found very beneficial and enlightening.
