New Websites about Legion Apostolic Schools
U. S. A. | WHO WE ARE | NEWS
Sacred Heart and Immaculate Conception help boys to discern possible vocations to the priesthood

US Apostolic School logos

Two Legion of Christ apostolic schools in the United States now have new websites. 

The newest website, http://www.icasnh.org/, was recently launched by the Immaculate Conception Apostolic School in Center Harbor, New Hampshire.

And at the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year, Sacred Heart Apostolic School in Rolling Prairie, Indiana, launched its new website, http://www.sacredheartapostolicschool.org/wp/.

The user-friendly websites are designed to answer the questions of prospective students and their parents, offering details on school mission statements, programs, curriculum, accreditation and tuition information and the formation process. 

Both schools help their students discern a possible vocation to the priesthood in a missionary order, congregation or diocese. The goal of both schools is to aid student discernment, with close support from parents, in an age-appropriate and gradual manner.  The schools offer a college preparatory curriculum to build a solid foundation for a future educational path into a major seminary, or the college of their choice.

“We seek to develop the seeds of a priestly vocation so that our students may more easily recognize it and be in a better position to respond to it,” said Fr. Steven Liscinsky LC, an alumnus and now Dean of Studies at Immaculate Conception.

“The religious family spirit and character formation we offer prepares the young man to follow Christ with generosity of spirit and purity of heart,” said Fr. Daren Weisbrod LC, Admissions director at Sacred Heart.

The Legion of Christ has 12 apostolic schools across the world, including the two in the United States, as well as in Italy, Germany, Spain, France, Mexico, Brazil, Columbia, and Venezuela.

Sacred Heart Apostolic School in Rolling Prairie, Indiana opened its doors in the fall of 2005 in the former Le Mans Academy building. Since then, more than 100 students have studied at the school, with 50% of graduates continuing on to the Legion of Christ’s novitiate in Cheshire, Connecticut, or to diocesan seminaries.  The school is located in northern, rural Indiana near Lake Michigan and the Warren Dunes.

Immaculate Conception Apostolic School was founded, and approved by the New Hampshire State Department of Education, in 1982. Since then, over 700 students have gone through the program, with more than 60 alumni now ordained priests.  The school is located in New Hampshire’s White Mountain and Lakes region.

Sacred Heart and Immaculate Conception both

offer active and challenging schedules that balance activities in four quadrants: spiritual depth, character building, intellectual development and apostolic action.

Students learn to put God first in their lives, with scheduled daily prayer and regular Mass attendance. They benefit from small class sizes and a low student-teacher ratio that assures each student receives personalized attention.  They receive one-on-one mentoring from Legionary priests to help them in their discernment process and formation.  They also participate in monthly retreats and Ignatian spiritual exercises once a year.

Students participate in intramural athletics, including soccer, basketball, baseball and other activities, and have lots of opportunities for outings to enjoy the outdoors.
