Controversy

“The word of God…is sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing until it divides soul from spirit…it is able to judge the thoughts and intentions of the heart. And before Him no creature is hidden, but all are naked and laid bare to the eyes of the One to whom we must render an account.”

Hebrews, IV

As Bishop James Conley says in his testimony (reproduced below), “it is understood by those who possess the perspective of history, that, as often as not, any human enterprise that seeks to promote the truth will eventually face some kind of opposition and adversity.” St. Gregory’s Academy was not immune from such opposition and adversity and after a number of successful years of operation the administration of the school was faced with accusations of disciplinary negligence which allowed for an unhealthy and immoral atmosphere in the school.


The following testimonies address this controversy and provide a privileged understanding of the facts from individuals directly involved with the school, including members of the Academy Board of Advisors:
