My child transferred into this school from another Catholic school that was not meeting her needs. Her teacher was able to get my daughter on task and caught up. The teachers are dedicated and great! Can't say enough about the Principal - he's always available to talk through any needs or concerns and is warm/gracious. I highly recommend our school.

Great school and great teachers. I know my child is getting a great education. No bullying and well mannered kids.

We have been part of St. Albert the Great for many years and love the teachers. The new Principal is amazing! I would highly recommend this school to anyone looking for a solid education for their children on the south-side. And they lowered tuition, who would have thought!

Much needed new leadership has infused life and a strategic vision for growth at our school. St. Albert is and has always been exceptional with academics but the energy of the new Principal along with all the positive change he has created - in a short time - is welcomed and very exciting!

Both of my sons attend preschool at St Albert the Great School. The preschool program is Great! My 4 year old son was writing his name and was able to identify all the letters of the alphabet by the end of the school year. Not only has he grown educationally but spiritually also.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
