We have 4 children attending MCPS. Erik is in middle school, and Hanna, Maija and Mary are at St. Bede’s. We also have 3 older children who have already left the nest! This is our 11th duty station, and the second time we’ve lived in Montgomery. We call the Upper Peninsula of Michigan home, and we’re happy that it’s only a two day drive from here to there.
We have always tried to find a Catholic school when we move to a new area.

We feel that the Catholic school system is consistently a wise choice for us when we move. We can trust that not only will our children receive a quality education, but they will receive the sacraments that will strengthen them as they grow up.
