The Dennis Bileca Foundation commits to True North

“Character is the only important thing we own.”  Dennis Bileca

The Dennis Bileca Institute for Character and Excellence is proud to announce the funding of $525,000 to True North Classical Academy.  True North is a Classical liberal arts charter school that is opening in August.  It will be the first Classical tuition-free, independent charter school to operate in South Florida.  The Foundation’s financial commitment represents the largest funding in its history.

“We honor my father’s legacy, when we honor all that is noble and excellent in our humanity.  The Foundation is proud to support True North’s mission of educating students to the highest levels of academic success by inspiring them to pursue all that is True, Good and Beautiful.”  Michael Bileca, Executive Director of the Foundation.

The support of the Foundation enabled True North to secure a five acre campus containing three school buildings.  In addition, the funds provided True North with the financial ability to hire the highest quality teachers that are devoted to the schools mission.

“We are indeed fortunate to have the resources available to establish one of the finest schools in our Community and State.  The Foundation’s backing enabled us to invest in the highest caliber teachers, curriculum and reside in a terrific location.”  Dr. Marc Snyder, Headmaster

About the Foundation

The Dennis Bileca Institute for Character and Excellence was established to honor the ideals and principles that Dennis Bileca devoted his life to.  Dennis was a firm believer in the beauty and grandeur inherent in our cultural Heritage and he embodied the Socratic belief that the “unexamined life is not worth living.”  Dennis lived a life seeking answers to life’s great questions.  What is Goodness?  What is Man at his best? What is he capable of becoming?

His life was a testament to the idea that a life led with character, integrity and love is grand and beautiful.  The Foundation furthers his legacy by helping organizations that are devoted to the Classical education ideals grounded in Truth, Goodness and Beauty.

“The striving for wisdom is the most important trait we can hope to achieve in life.  In classical thought, the whole point of education is to grow in character and ultimately achieve wisdom.”  Dennis Bileca
