A Catholic Christian perspective of history is an indispensable part of an authentic Catholic education. To teach history through the eyes of the Church has special challenges in a society influenced by a relativistic view of and truth and Christianity. St. William of York Catholic School is committed to providing a Catholic lens and habits of thinking and asking questions that help students read the story of man’s history as the story of human redemption.
The Catholic Textbook Project history books have become a treasury of Catholic understanding of history in numerous Catholic schools, including St. William of York. Reading historical fiction is another essential way for our students to experience the great adventure s that have shaped history.
