Imagine walking into the UCS campus MS building in that same year 2024. What would you see? What are the conversations like? Describe in detail that "day in a life" of a middle schooler in 2024. What words would you use to describe UCS at its BEST?

(some passages from the Prayer led by Frank O'Linn, Principal, at the IB of St. Edward Highschool)
"To what end would it serve students to know how to read, write, calculate, and draw, or to possess some notions of history, geography ,geometry physics and chemistry if they are ignorant of their duties to God, to themselves, and to society, or if, while knowing them, they did not conform their conduct to that knowledge?"
"We shall always place education side by side with instruction; the mind will not be cultivated at the expense of the heart. While we prepare useful citizens for society, we shall likewise do our utmost to prepare citizens for heaven.
