On Thursday, February 4, sophomores Matthew and Christian Caceres represented Christian Brothers Academy at a New Jersey State House event recognizing National Catholic Schools Week (Jan. 31 – Feb. 6).
The event included attending a live legislative session, a State House tour and the Governor’s Proclamation in celebration of National Catholic Schools Week. Several legislators and Catholic school representatives from around the state attended.
As a Catholic institution that actively participates in the week’s celebrations, we are proud that two of our own students were present for the State’s formal recognition of CSW16.
