About the Book

Catholic education can transform our children, and we can transform Catholic education: that is the foundational message of this book. Drawing inspiration from the work of Stratford Caldecott, Pope Benedict XVI, and many others, Out of the Classroom and into the World delivers a rallying cry for parents, teachers, and home educators, offering a probing analysis of contemporary Catholic education and making practical, actionable suggestions for real and lasting change.


“It is with great pleasure that I see Roy Peachey taking up the challenges laid down by Stratford Caldecott in his ground-breaking work on education.”


co-director of Second Spring

“Philosophically sophisticated yet down-to-earth, this bold call to action should be read by all who care about the formation and welfare of children.”


University of Nottingham

“In Out of the Classroom and into the World, Roy Peachey makes an important contribution to helping Catholic parents, teachers, schools, and pastors take back ownership of Catholic education.”


Institute for Catholic Liberal Education and Thomas Aquinas College

“Building on the solid foundation of parents’ role as first educators, Roy Peachey traces out an attractive vision of what Catholic education could be, while remaining clear-sighted about the particular challenges now faced by those who are serious about changing contemporary culture.”


The Cedars School

“For those homeschooling parents, like myself, whose educational philosophy is best expressed by the work of Stratford Caldecott, this is the book we’ve been waiting for. Just as Caldecott’s books inspired a movement to bring beauty back into education, it is my hope that Peachey’s book will be an inspiration in the ongoing transformation of Catholic education in the twenty-first century.”


The Kirkos Caravan Cottage School

“Witty, personal, and authoritative, this beautifully written and deeply learned book makes fresh the timeless lessons of a Catholic education and gives a much-needed reminder to Catholic schools and colleges of what they are about.”


Worth School

“Roy Peachey deploys a wide range of scholarship, both ancient and recent, to reflect on the vocation of Catholic educators and schools to walk in loving accompaniment with parents in their educational endeavor and mission.”


St. Mary’s School
