Regina Coeli Academy in Abington hosted its annual “Stand Up for the Children” event May 13 at Normandy Farm and Conference Center in Blue Bell.
The guest speaker was Patrick Reilly, president and CEO of the Cardinal Newman Society, which advocates for Catholic education. His talk “Catholic Education: Hope for Family and Religious Freedom” focused on the increasing challenges to families and religious freedom in contemporary society, including cultural, governmental and educational factors.
He offered hope in reversing these challenges by highlighting the renewal in Catholic education that is happening today at Catholic schools such as Regina Coeli Academy and schools in dioceses across the country.
Prior to the evening event Reilly toured Regina Coeli’s Catholic, classical academy during an open house. He also met with prospective families and visited classes in session.
The school recently announced it will expand its preschool program this fall by providing a pre-K and Kindergarten Montessori program led by accredited Montessori faculty.
Regina Coeli Academy’s Children’s House offers half-day and full-day programs for young children ages 3 through 4 years and a full day for children ages 5 and 6.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
