After a few growing pains early in the season, the Knights are fully tuned, locked, and ready to go for their second-round match-up against a familiar foe: Jesse Remington. The Knights advanced through the first round, albeit without playing an actual game, and should have all their energy savored for this decisive game. If the Knights lose, they will play for 3rd place in the final standings on Saturday, November 13th. If the Knights win, they will play for 1st place against either Holy Family Academy, Parker, or Tri City.
Inevitably, the likelihood of advancing is largely based upon our reso...Read More
Going to serve the poor and needy at Cor Unum was an inspiring experience. I was given the task of serving people their meals and making sure that there was a new place set for the next people to come. At first I looked at as a good chance to collect service hours for school, but as soon as I served the first table of people my perspective changed. One would think working at a soup kitchen is a depressing undertaking, something that would dampen your spirits as you were exposed to the poverty of the people. It was actually exactly the opposite. I was filled with joy at the opportunity I was gi...Read More
The Knights will host the #6 seed on Monday, November 8th, in what has become the first ever playoff soccer match held at Mount Royal Academy.
Kick-off is scheduled for 3:15pm. We invite everyone in the MRA community to come out and support our team. We also happily welcome spiritual support through prayer, for all those families who will be unable to cheer us in person. Spiritual cheers work even better!Read More
The Knights finished the regular season on a high note, with a decisive 3-2 victory over visiting Jesse Remington at home. This game was action-packed, stacked with timely saves by a rookie keeper Matt Bocko, as well as some sensational offensive demonstrations put on by Pablo Marquez. The defense was sound and simple once again, led by the resurgence of Joe Wallace and Matt Begin, who protected the middle of our defensive area with intensity and determination. This was a key game primarily because it propels us into the playoffs with a great deal of positive momentum.
Thus, we finish the regu...Read More
Please join us for our last tune up before the playoffs this upcoming Wednesday, as we will compete against Jesse Remington at home. Kickoff is set for 3:00pm.
Jesse Remington is the second place team in our league. We nearly stole the show when we traveled to their field earlier in the season, almost overcoming a 3-0 deficit in the final 5 minutes of the game. We stand in 3rd place currently, but need to gather and retain some confidence against the higher ranked teams in our league.
We also would like to make another plea for spiritual support. Our student-athletes have tried tremendously ha...Read More
Today is a special day at Mount Royal Academy. After a few academic lessons during the morning we will celebrate Mass on this holy day, and then proceed onward to our annual All Saints festivities. Stay tuned for a brief reflection on this glorious occasion later in the day!Read More
Below, a description from their website expresses the distinctiveness of the type of service our students will be performing:
"We serve hundreds of people every day, with a small core staff and a large army of generous volunteers. We opened the doors of the Cor Unum Meal Center on September 30, 2006 and in our first four years we served over 650,000 guests! At the current rate of meal service, approximately 200,000 meals are served annually at Cor Unum.
Cor Unum ...Read More
Just a reminder: the entire Upper School will be traveling to Boston, Massachusetts to embark upon the famous Freedom Trail on this upcoming Thursday. Each grade level is studying some form of United States History, and with the sites of the American Revolution so close to our area, how could we not take advantage of such a wonderful opportunity?
We welcome some extra prayers for the safety and protection of our students as we travel, and that they may be roused to seek true freedom through Christ as they learn about how our political freedom was won for us centuries ago.Read More
As All Saints Day nears, a day proclaimed to be especially holy in the liturgical calendar, our school began its annual preparations in honor of this special day. This is yet another distinctive feature of the Mount Royal charism, as we aim to celebrate the glory of God and the saints, in stark juxtaposition against the deceitfulness and malice of some of the more popular cultural traditions.
We are re-implementing the Big Buddy, Little Buddy program this year. All of the upper grade level students are paired with lower grade level students, where they converse about the life of the saint, pre...Read More
With only 3 games overall left in the schedule - 1 exhibition and 2 league matches - the Knights are nearing the postseason. We posted a 1-1 record during the last week, thus settling us at 4-5-1 overall and 4-4 in league play. We will most likely finish in either 3rd or 4th place, which we give us the privilege of hosting a 1st round playoff match against a lower seed.
On Monday we competed against RSEC Academy, and finished with a 2-1 victory in what became a very hard fought battle. We were without some key forwards, thereby hindering our offensive explosiveness. However, Jason Fraioli and ...Read More
