Strober Selected All-Centennial First Team in Singles

May 11, 2021

LANCASTER, Pa. – Washington College sophomore Landon Strober (Millstone, N.J./Allentown High School Class of 2019) has been named All-Centennial Conference first team singles in men’s tennis in a vote conducted by the conference’s head coaches. In addition, sophomore Christian Gruyon (Bronx, N.Y./Riverdale Kingsbridge Academy) was named to the Centennial Conference All-Sportsmanship Team.

Strober, who played No. 1 singles in every match this season, went 5-4 overall and 4-2 in Centennial matches. His five wins tied for tops on the team this spring.

“Landon is one of the hardest workers I have seen since being at Washington College day in and day out,” stated Reynolds. “He competed at the top of our line-up this year, going 5-2 at number one. His ability and perseverance to find ways to stay in matches is something we have been looking for to help our team succeed. This young man is going to continue to get better, and the second half of his career at Washington College is going to be a lot of fun to watch!”

Gruyon was named to the All-Sportsmanship for the first time. Each Centennial Conference member institution was permitted to nominate one student-athlete who exemplifies the best in sportsmanship for the All-Sportsmanship Team.

Trenton Catholic Academy Will Close Its Doors In June

January 8, 2021

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, NJ (MERCER)-It was announced today that Trenton Catholic Academy will close its doors in June 2021.

Statement from Mayor Jeff Martin:

“It is a sad day for the Diocese of Trenton, Trenton Catholic Academy (TCA) and Hamilton Township, said Hamilton Mayor Jeff Martin.  Whether known as St. Anthony’s, McCorristin or TCA, there has always been a great partnership between the school and the Township.  Hamilton is committed to helping TCA and the Diocese in the months to come.  On behalf of the Township, I thank them for their nearly 60 years of providing a high quality, well-rounded education to those in our greater Hamilton community.”    

Statement posted on the Diocese of Trenton website:

TRENTON CATHOLIC ACADEMY TO CLOSE IN JUNE; DIOCESE TO OFFER RESOURCES FOR STUDENTS TO CONTINUE CATHOLIC EDUCATION

In the last 15 years, Trenton Catholic Academy’s Upper and Lower Schools in Hamilton Township have built a strong legacy in the areas of academics, athletics, faith formation and service to the community. With limited funding and resources, the pre-K3 through 12th grade school has successfully served tens of thousands of students from diverse ethnic, racial and socioeconomic backgrounds, aided significantly through diocesan subsidy and a specially-established fund, as well as a strong network of benefactors, community partners and supporters of its mission.

Since opening its doors, the Upper School has graduated nearly 1,000 students, sending many of them to top colleges and universities.  TCA alumni have gone on to prestigious careers and several have advanced to play professional sports.  Most importantly, the school has succeeded in meeting the hopes of the school’s late founding president St. Joseph Sister Dorothy Payne, who wanted her students to be: “Good kids that live good lives that make the world a better place.”

Unfortunately, the growing cost of providing a quality, innovative education has consistently outpaced tuition and fundraising income, leaving the school with a $2 million deficit each year and a cumulative need for $24 million in financial support over the past 12 years.  Additionally, the special fund once established for the school has been nearly depleted.  The economic impact of the coronavirus pandemic has dealt a serious blow to families’ abilities to afford tuition and to strategic plans that had aimed to increase revenue.  As a result, the Diocese of Trentonhas regretfully accepted the recommendation of TCA president Michael Knowles that the Upper and Lower Schools — which together educate some 550 students — should close this coming June.

Acknowledging that every possible option was considered before reaching this conclusion, Knowles stated, “We have truly been blessed by so many generous people who believed in this mission and backed it up with their ‘sweat equity.’”  Knowles, who has served as president since the death of Sister Dorothy in 2019, added, “We have had the most incredible leadership and dedication in our administration, our faculty and our staff. We are very proud of all of our students and the difference they will continue to make in their communities and beyond.”

Diocesan Superintendent of Catholic Schools Dr. Vincent de Paul Schmidt pointed to steps that the Diocese will take to assist TCA students transitioning to a new Catholic school next year.  He said, “TCA students will be welcomed at Notre Dame High School in nearby Lawrenceville and at a number of Catholic elementary schools in close proximity to TCA so that Catholic education might continue to be available in Mercer County.”

Dr. Schmidt also announced that the Diocese of Trenton intends to make some transitional scholarship monies available for the 2021-22 school year to students seeking to continue their education in one of the Catholic schools affiliated with the Diocese or its parishes.  Knowles said that with the funds made available by the Diocese, a transition plan will be worked out with TCA families.

A team of diocesan representatives will meet with the 57 TCA employees to review severance and benefits packages, and to offer assistance in finding employment.
