AP Gov't Students Indicative of Iona Prep's Mission - Educating the Whole Man

They say a picture is worth 1,000 words. In the case of Richard Salerno's Advanced Placement (AP) Government classes, it'll probably be worth a couple million in academic scholarships to colleges and universities across the country. That's because it's a photo of 25 scholar-athletes from Mr. Salerno AP Gov't courses, which is enough to constitute a full class by themselves before you add in the six gentlemen not pictured.

As President Brother Thomas Leto often says, Iona Preparatory School educates the complete young man--mind, body and spirit. The number of varsity athletes in Mr. Salerno's AP Government course is a telephoto testament to that tenant of Christian Brother education. Those students include:
