The Civilettis both attended Catholic school when they were children. Hortense graduated from Bayley-Ellard Catholic High School in Madison. Robert grew up in New York City and attended Mary Help of Christians School, where Sister Dominica Di Peri was his first-grade teacher.
He still clearly remembers being corrected by Sister Dominica as she played the piano during class one day. She used to keep a bicycle mirror on top of the piano so she could keep an eye on her class; however, the students did not seem to realize she could see them. When Robert asked how Sister Dominica knew that he was misbehaving, she simply told him, "God told me."
