On Friday, December 19th, at 7 p.m.,The Lyceum Schola Cantorum will sing at its annual Festival of Advent Lessons and Carols at Sacred Heart of Jesus Parish."The Festival of Lessons and Carols is a service of Scripture and song that dates to the late 19th century.

Great Books

We believe that every student deserves a one-on-one encounter with the greatest minds that have ever lived. To a great extent, and whenever the subject matter is within their capacity, students read either original texts or excerpts from original texts.
