Mr. Steven Edelson
Steven Edelson is a graduate of the Montfort Academy, which is where he first developed his passion for Theology and Philosophy. He then went on to double major in both of these subjects at Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio. There he studied under professors such as Scott Hahn, John Bergsma, and John Crosby. After college Steven went on to become a missionary with Generation Life, serving as a public speaker in all 5 boroughs of New York as well as much of Westchester County. He spoke mainly about pro-life and chastity issues, as well as Pope John Paul II's Theology of the Body. From here, Steven went on to use his degree more directly as a Theology teacher at Salesian High School in New Rochelle, where he taught for 4 years.
Now he is returning home to Montfort where it all began, the place where his love for Theology and Philosophy (faith and reason) originated, and where his zeal for truth, goodness, beauty, and Christ was cultivated and given the chance to grow. Steven brings with him a passion for the arts; especially opera and drama; he acted in plays all through high school and college, but sadly has no singing ability whatsoever. He also brings a passion for the poor, having served on missions to 4 under-developed countries (most recently Nicaragua in July of 2017).
Steven will be serving as Montfort’s admissions director as well as teaching part time Theology and Chivalry. He is very excited and grateful for the opportunity to give back to the school that has given so much to him., to help continue its noble mission in the lives of the young people in our society, and to spread its fruitful influence throughout the culture and throughout the world.
