The mission of Saint Stanislaus, a Catholic boarding and day school for young men, is to form each student to Gospel values by nurturing his spiritual, academic, and physical growth in a place of sanctuary structured to embody the charism of the Brothers of the Sacred Heart.

Saint Stanislaus and the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation partner for the 'Arches to Success' program

The Patrick F. Taylor Foundation recently awarded a grant to Saint Stanislaus to fund a program that will allow a select group of 7
th or 8 th grade students to attend Saint Stanislaus as boarding students next fall.

Talks of this idea began at last year's benefit dinner in New Orleans with Brother Barry Landry and Brian Murphy of Saint Stanislaus and Mrs. Phyllis Taylor.

Details of the partnership include an "ambassador" program whereby members of the Saint Stanislaus community will mentor and enhance the lives of these young boys through their graduation in 2023.

Saint Stanislaus is honored and humbled by the support of Mrs. Taylor and the foundation her late husband founded in 1985. The vision of the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation supports the concept that it is better to teach a person to care for oneself, rather than to give the person a handout. It is apparent that for many the ability to achieve full potential is out of reach. Financial and other constraints create barriers not easily overcome. The Foundation's work is to respond to this need by providing the means by which it can be most effective. 
Been There: Lessons Through Experience 
Reconnecting with Saint Stanislaus Alumni
 
For this month's Been There, we look back at the passionate commencement address delivered by valedictorian A.K. Moise in 1919. Moise encouraged his classmates as they prepared to leave their "quiet and secure home" and go forth into the world. Read the entire commencement address here
Rock-a-Chaws attend the 
Mississippi Restoration Summit
Saint Stanislaus's marine science students attended the Mississippi Restoration Summit for an unbelievable opportunity to learn more about 
efforts to protect and preserve coastal habitats.


Saint Stanislaus was personally invited to the Mississippi Restoration Summit by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality. They also hosted the event. 

The school received the
invitation based upon its students' participation in the MDEQ Beach Outfalls Challenge last year. 

Throughout the summit, students received personal attention. The day was set up with hands-on activities, just for them. The Pascagoula River Audubon Center hosted the tidal marsh accretion/erosion component, DMR hosted the oyster biology station and the Nature Conservancy hosted the amphibians and reptiles station. 

The entire day was full of personal attention, excitement and learning for the students and the adults.
