For the Alumni of SWC (Formerly Known as the Academy)

The Academy (permit me to call it that instead of Seat of Wisdom College) is in the midst of an alumni giving back campaign. The long and short of it is that they are looking for alumni, ALL alumni, to pledge monthly donations. Set monthly donations makes life much more palatable for the school. I know with almost complete moral certainty that alumni can easily pledge, if nothing else, $5 to $10 a month. We're so rich. We have no idea. Don't take my word for it. Listen to the wisdom of Weird Al:


Look, maybe things were better in the "old days" at the Academy. I think many of us alumni like to think so. Regardless, we need places like the Academy. Where else in Canada can people go to be immersed in Aquinas, Aristotle, and Magisterial thought? Where else are we going to go to learn how to think clearly? Last week we had teacher meetings all day. I was put in a group with a few others and we were given a problem to solve. I came up with a solution in under 20 seconds. The group wasn't sure about it. They then spent the next 90 minutes discussing in detail each and every aspect of the problem, while I sat there and drooled in boredom. They finally concluded that they should use my original solution. It has nothing to do with high intelligence. It's just that the Academy teaches people (it taught me) how to think clearly.

There is an urgency to this message. The Academy has a matching donor for this week. Give immediately to double your investment.

Alumni, please go to the Academy website HERE.
