In his monthly column for Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture (of which he is the executive editor), and in articles published elsewhere (especially the national Catholic weekly newspaper The Wanderer), Scott frequently writes on Catholic themes.
While Scott was completing his studies at the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., he and his wife, Amy, spent two years at a Byzantine Ruthenian Catholic parish in Annandale, Virginia, where they became well versed in the history and liturgies of Eastern Rite Catholic churches.
Today, they belong to St. Mary Oratory, a traditional Latin Mass parish in Rockford, Illinois. Scott and Amy homeschool their eight children using a traditional Catholic curriculum, and Scott has written homeschooling courses for Seton Home Study School, a Catholic homeschooling organization in Front Royal, Virginia.
Scott holds a B.A. in Political Science from Michigan State University, where he took a number of religious-studies courses. In 1992, he received his M.A. in Political Theory from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C., where, in addition to his general political-theory studies, he pursued an interest in the political and social thought of the early Church Fathers.
