#OCSB #ottnews NDHS Basketball Academy and the Catholic Faith

Looks like the OCSB is heading down the route of pseudo-Catholic basketball colleges “in the Jesuit tradition” like Gonzaga and Georgetown and USF in the USA.

They are partnering with a $10,000/yr basketball academy to being it to Notre Dame NDHS. How many of the academy kids will be Catholic? 10%? 20% Are ANY of the Academy execs practising Catholics? Why did the OCSB press release no mention the promotion of the Catholic faith once?

Topflight will have a private elite classroom inside taxpayer funded NDHS

How will this new Basketball institute enhance the Catholic nature of NDHS in ANY way?

 

PS: where did the Trustees approve this?  There is no record in a ny school board mtg.
