  • Our daughter attends this wonderful school. We highly recommend it. We never have concern about our daughter getting mixed up with the wrong crowd here! 
  • Nice to walk around the pathways, flowers, and trees. Great architecture. Peaceful. Pretty. Interesting place.

  • This is a very nice school with very friendly people. One of my relatives goes her and he/she loves it. I intend to go here too.
  • I've been a student here for almost two years and I've found the experience to be one of the most amazing, life enhancing experiences of my life. I'm at home away from home.
  • One of the best schools for a solid Catholic foundation. The academics are challenging and the faculty are very invested in the students spiritual, mental, and physical growth. It's pretty much my home.
  • It's pretty mediocre. If you're coming out of Catholic school, it probably will be challenging because you haven't been prepared for anything remotely academic. If you're coming out of a good public school, it'll bore you to tears for at least the first two years. Most of the intro level classes are what you've already done in middle and high school -- again, if you came out of PUBLIC school.
  • Great school, beautiful campus, wonderful spiritual life. Perfect for any catholic student that can afford it.
