Notre Dame University’s highly competitive Alliance for Catholic Education (ACE) program has selected Our Lady of Hope for the 2017-2018 and 2018-2019 school years. Two young and faith-filled teachers from Notre Dame will join the OLH faculty for the coming two years. We are excited to welcome Andrew Miller is Pre-Med and Theology Major and Katherine Witty Elementary Ed major to Our Lady of Hope!
ACE is a national program that places young, dynamic teachers in Catholic schools across the country. It is a highly competitive program. For the next two years, the Archdiocese of Philadelphia will receive only four ACE teachers, two of whom are coming to Our Lady of Hope. The other two will be going to Roman Catholic High School and St. Laurentius Catholic Grade School.
“We are truly blessed,” commented Our Lady of Hope’s principal Patty Cody. “I recently returned from a training program at Notre Dame and I cannot tell you how excited I am that we were selected for this very prestigious opportunity.”
The ACE program engages Notre Dame graduates and graduates from affiliated universities who volunteer for participation. They receive training and support from the university in advance of their deployment across the nation to serve in Catholic schools. The four ACE teachers coming to Philadelphia will live together in a distinctly Catholic community while they teach at their various schools.
The best school ever just keeps getting better!
