The Spotlight on Local History series of the American Catholic Historical Society will shine on “Little Flower High School and Catholic Girls’ Education in Philadelphia” during a free online event via Zoom on Sunday, Feb. 21 from 2 to 3:30 p.m.
Presenter Barbara Klaczynska Schmidt, Ph.D., will trace the 300-year history of Catholic education in Philadelphia, and especially for girls as it evolved to make Philadelphia a national model. There will be a special focus on the establishment and survival of Little Flower Catholic High School as the school community celebrates its 80th anniversary of offering an exceptional education for young women.
