Mr. Cuatto was born in Salt Lake City, Utah, but has lived in various places since. He spends a great deal of his time with his wife and young child hiking and enjoying outdoor activities in the mountains.
A genuine Latin enthusiast and scholar, Mr. Cuatto is persistent and unremitting in his study and reading of Latin. His favorite book is Quo Vadis by Henryk Sienkiewicz. He is currently reading The Founding of Christendom by Warren Carrol together with Pagans and Christians in Late Antiquity by A.D. Lee.
Mr. Cuatto learned about Golden View Classical Academy from Mrs. Kim Miller, one of the founders of Ridgeview Classical Schools. He then independently researched the school and the Barney Charter School Initiative. Golden View Classical’s stated goals for education, together with the clear family and community support, were very much in sync with Mr. Cuatto’s own expectations and hopes for a school, so he decided to become a part of it. “The articles and reflections posted by its various members served as further confirmation of a mutual vision. Lastly, its geographical location was no small enticement.”
As a Latinist, Mr. Cuatto is full of anticipation to be the first upper-school Latin instructor. “Golden View Classical has a clear commitment to the essential role of Latin in the curriculum, and it is my hope that, in collaboration with others, we can lay a sure foundation for a successful, growing, and renowned Latin program.”
One of his favorite things about our facility is its proximity to the mountains. “I’m fond of the peripatetic practice of Aristotle, who taught while walking in courtyards. Indeed, creation is a textbook and induces the mind to observation and a sensitivity to beauty; Golden View Classical’s location in Golden near the mountains is the next best thing.”
What excites Mr. Cuatto most about the future of Golden View Classical is the opportunity afforded him to help earn a worthy name for the school and see the fruits of alumni who can infuse our culture with classical virtues and values.
