I had 2 kids that graduated from ACC and both are doing well in college. It was a very good High School experience for both of them academically, spiritually, socially, and athletically. It's worth the money.
Aurora Central Catholic is a great school. However, their are some issues with teachers and students. 1. The cheerleading coach is terrible. She has no experience working with cheerleaders. She was never a cheerleader herself. She couldn't choreograph a routine if she needed to. She also doesn't know how to handle situations as far as drama with other teammates, etc. She also speaks to team captains about who she wants to kick off the team,and gossips greatly about the girls. 2. One of the teachers is always touching girls. He plays with their hair, and tries to hold their hand. This is very inappropriate behavior for a man his age. 3. Most situations aren't handled well. I've experienced one and personally heard from other that bullying occured and nothing was done about it. That's just poor staffing. I love the school, but their need to be some changes. The parent that said her daughter wasn't prepared for college probably had a lazy student who didn't apply herself. It's a fabulous school that prepares you for the future very well. There are just some staff members that need to be dealt with.
Really disappointing experience. My daughter attended for four years. She was not adequately prepared for college. Poor math and science teachers (except Mrs. Elgar). Religious ed is a joke. They do not practice what they preach. Mr Curry and Mr V and Mrs. Elgar and very good, but the others are very poor.
The environment is like a public school except it costs more. The teachers aren't very good. The classes aren't interesting and the school day seems to drag on because of this.
There are many bad influences around the school that i dont enjoy. Its hard to find a group of friends with the same moral values as me. The classes are really easy but i dont really feel like im learning.
Great school, however, I wish they follow thru and find out what it is going on in the lives of the alumni before sending out letters , etc.
My grandchildren have gone, still are going, and son-in-law, is an Alumni,...wonderful teaching staff...Father Etheridge and Sister Mary Catherine. just to name 2...are wonderful examples, of the teaching staff.....I am so very proud to be part of this academic facility....
The school's curriculum is lacking but i found my child to be happy while at the school.
Amazing High School, great environment creating a positive experience for the most balanced education. Teaching pride but not arrogance. Education, sports, and a positive Christian environment blended to combine college prep with positive life experience. Sports are very competitive and all are welcome and encouraged.
I'm in alumni i believe this is a great school even if your not catholic. the Education is great. They hold a higher grade scale than those of
Wew sent five chidren through ACC from the mid 80's through 2001. We found it an excellent place to educate our children in preparation for life, living their Faith and for College preparation. The tuition is a sacrifice, but it is an excellent investment in the lives of our children.
