I had two kids graduate from Costa and it was a great experience for them. The teachers were wonderful and the parents involvement was exceptional, everyone worked together. I would recommend Costa to anyone.

Costa does provide good, solid education but it is provided in an environment that is troubling to some students. Bullying is a big issue at Costa that is often ignored by most parents because their children are not the receivers. This makes it hard for the child to learn and retain anything at all except low self esteem.

This was a very good school a few years ago. Do to overspending they have now cut teachers, raised tuition significantly and increased class sizes. My child only had 12 students in class in 2006-2007. This increased to 25 students in the 2007-2008.

Costa is a strong family school. The teachers are always thre to discuss issues, there are many extra curricular activities, and families are encouraged to be involved with their childs education. Academically it is strong with a good base for the general population of learners, however it could use a program to deal with academically advanced students. Thay have their own staffed special education and each student is helped they way it works best for them and the school. The cost is fair, and well worth the money so your child is not exposed to some of the vulgar and lude things that get seen and heard at public schools.

Costa Catholic Academy leads area academics. The school has close family support, and uses volunteers to connect to the community. The tuition is a great value for anyone who wants a special learning environment that is the best in 50 miles!
