A Parent’s Perspective on the Value of Private School

Brendt Stier,  a pharmacologist, spent most of 2020 developing Moderna’s COVID-19 clinical trials prior to the December 2020 vaccine roll-out. “It’s been a great experience to learn so much about the virus and to find innovative ways to help our clients treat or prevent the COVID-19 virus,” says Stier, senior director of value and development consulting with PPD, Moderna’s strategic development partner. “Every day I’m reading scientific journals, textbooks, etc. to learn about the latest trends or therapies for a particular disease.”

When it came time to choose the best educational option for their son, Stier and his wife Liz wanted a school that embraced their passion for lifelong learning. Like many parents, they did their research. “We explored the public school system because we wanted to see what they had to offer and quickly realized that the larger class sizes and multiple grade levels really wasn’t what we were looking for,” Stier explains.

They chose St. James Academy (SJA), a Preschool through 8th grade, coed, Episcopalian school in Monkton, Md., for their son Jason, who is in 1st grade. Since fall 2020, SJA, which commemorates its 200th anniversary this year, has had in-person learning five days per week since the beginning of the 2020-21 school year.

Maryland public school students have had some of the least opportunities in the nation to attend regular in-person instruction despite the state’s moderate COVID-19 spread.

Roughly half of normal in-person instruction is open in Maryland — the fifth-lowest in the nation as of April 13, according to Burbio, a community event tracker.

Maryland ranks toward the middle of states in daily average of new COVID-19 cases per 100,000 residents in the last seven days, at 23, according to the New York Times tracker.

The history of Black graphic design, explored by MICA

Artist and author Cheryl D. Miller will lead MICA’s exploration of Black designers.

In 1987, designer and author Cheryl D. Miller published a Print magazine article titled “Black Designers: Missing in Action,” questioning the dismally low number of Black professionals in the design industry.
