The Boston Globe profiles several local Catholic high schools that have undergone major renovations in order to appeal to families and reverse trends toward declining enrollment. Amidst the talk of plasma screen TVs and food courts, can you find what isn’t mentioned by the reporter or school representatives?
Could it be, say, anything to do with the reason the schools are called “Catholic”? The closest we get is the administrator of St. John’s Prep in Danvers saying: “The quality of the facilities reflects the quality of academics, the quality of spiritual life.”
(To be fair, all we have is what the reporter chose to include in the story. Perhaps the school officials did mention it; we don’t know.)
