Congratulations to the graduating class of 2020!
CLASS OF 2020
THOMAS ALEXANDER ANDREWS
Thomas is 18 years old and looking forward to graduating this year. He has grown up at CHA, attending since he was in the nursery.
Thomas has always enjoyed being active whether playing football, baseball, basketball, riding his bike or walking. Now that he drives and has his own truck he enjoys driving and as always hanging out with his friends.
Since he was a young child, Thomas has had an interest in taking things apart and putting them back together. He could never just leave something alone. It is no surprise that he will attend a trade school where he can do just that. The specific trade has not yet been 100% decided.
Thomas has enjoyed his years at CHA making many friends along the way; lifelong friends. His tutors have been wonderful and have had a positive impact on him which we are very grateful for.
MAXIMILIAN JOSEPH ANTHONY
Scott and Teresa Anthony are proud of their son, Maximilian Joseph Anthony, graduating from CHA in 2020. Max has brought so much joy, laughter and creativity into our family. Max has been at Christiana since his 7th grade year, and in addition to his dramatic and comedic performances at CHA, from playing the Emperor in the “Emperor’s New Clothes” in 8th grade, to belting out “Agony” in this year’s Broadway Revue, we’ve watched him diligently apply himself to schoolwork these six years, culminating in all of his hard work on his senior thesis this year, “The Necessity for Celibacy in the Catholic Priesthood”.
Max has felt the Lord calling him to the priesthood since the age of 5, and in order to further discern if this indeed is the Lord’s will, he is starting at Franciscan University this August to major in Philosophy and Theology, and Lord willing, to be part of their Priestly Discernment Program. As Max’s parents, we appreciate any and all prayers offered up for Max for his vocational discernment.
KATHRYN MARIE STACHOWIAK
Kathryn Marie Stachowiak is 17 years old and is an only child in her family and who has been homeschooled since the age of three. For grades first through tenth, she studied under the Seton HomeSchool Study Program. To develop her education in an interactive environment, and with the anticipation of attending Prom, and a graduation, she attended CHA for her 11th and 12th grades.
Kathryn is passionate about dance. She has been taking lessons since the age of 18 months. She currently attends the Taneytown Dance Center (TDC) where she participates in multiple dance forms including ballet, contemporary ballet, tap, lyrical, modern, hip hop, jazz and pointe. She is also a member of the Senior Performing Company at TDC where they perform around town at different venues. She hopes to develop her skills at TDC an an instructor while attending college.
Kathryn lives on a farmette and enjoys spending quality time with her horse, Lady, when she isn't driving the tractor around the fields or cleaning out stalls. She has been involved for many years in the fostering and adopting of multiple goldens as part of the GRREAT Golden Rescue organization. She also loves antagonizing her two cats, Choo and Gooey.
Kathryn is a Eucharistic Minister at St John Catholic Church. She has been a PA (Program Aide) at Girl Scout Day Camp for the past six years. She loves hanging out with her friends, cruising around town in her Jeep, and helping her live-in grandmother do day-to-day activities. Kathryn has a kind, compassionate heart. She loves God, her family, her friends.
Kathryn will be attending McDaniel college in the fall, majoring in Chemistry.
Faith Taylor was born in Maryland in the summer of 2002 and is the first child and only daughter of Matthew and Omayone Taylor.
Faith was always a very focused child and grew up into a focused student. As a young girl, she was never a big fan of dolls or other such toys. In fact, one year in elementary school (much to her mother’s surprise), she asked for workbooks as her Christmas present!
Faith attended New Town elementary school and then went on to Liberty Christian school for her middle school years.
Faith encountered a number of challenges during her high school years but through them all, by the grace of God, she continued to persevere and remained focused and diligent.
We are so very proud of the young woman that she has become. She is beautiful, confident, and loves Jesus.
Faith is heading to college in the fall and will be attending St. Vincent College in Pennsylvania.
Registration for the 2020-21 School year is still OPEN!

WHY A CLASSICAL EDUCATION?
What is a classical education? It's composed of three stages called the Trivium. It breaks down the Who, What, Where, When, How and Why of a subject into three separate categories. These three categories correlate to a child's development. This method is a methodology of learning how to learn and learning how to think.
"Is not the great defect of our education today --- a defect traceable through all the disquieting symptoms of trouble that I have mentioned -- that although we often succeed in teaching our pupils "subjects," we fail lamentably on the whole in teaching them how to think?" - Dorothy Sayers
"I’ve just been on a journey—an adventure—beginning at the base of an immense mountain God wanted me to climb. It was so overwhelming at first, I couldn’t see the summit. So He gave me guides and mentors to lead me up the mountain. He also gave me many wonderful teachers who provided me with tools for climbing—tools such as Math and Science, Logic and Rhetoric. These tools helped me to begin and continue my journey." - April Smith, 2017 Graduate
