The school strives to prepare students for college or some form of higher education. Whether that be a vocational or technical school or a four year university, homework is a part of it. The school gives an appropriate amount of homework to prepare students for higher education and teach them the importance of balancing and not procrastinating.
I have read some posts that the school's students are mean and clicky. Yes, you may come across some students who are like this - it is in every school. But the majority of the students are not this way.
As a graduate of IMAC, I am happy to say that IMAC prepared me not only for college but for the real world. Personally, academically, my freshmen year of college was easier than any of my years in high school. IMAC and its staff taught me organization skills, accountability, and self-discipline through its high expectations. I also learned leadership skills and how to work with different personality types. Despite some comments that have been made about the offered extra curriculars, IMAC has a variety of activities and clubs that students can participate in. If a student is interested in something that is not offered at the school, there are opportunities to collaborate with the public schools. You get the best of both worlds - small, family-oriented school with the opportunities and options of a larger school.
Also, for those who comment that the school costs too much - does it cost more than public school? Yes, but it is worth it. There are a number of options in place such as scholarships and reductions. If someone wants to attend the school, the school will work with you financially.
My 2 daughters attend Immaculata High School. The best decision we've made as parents has been to send our girls to a Catholic high school. The emphasis on Christ in their daily lives and how that reflects in their schoolwork and interactions with peers and staff is more than we ever received at public school. Thank you for providing high quality education and spiritual guadiance to my students as they are growing and learning in Christ.
(Side note my husband and daughters are not Catholic)
A wonderful place to prepare your child for the future ahead of them. They have hands down the best test teachers and curriculum, which can be seen by the test scores. All of the students are set up for success. do not listen to rumors of this school closing. This school has so much parental and community support that it will never happen. They have many new programs coming up in the next few year if can I highly suggest going down and taking a tour and talking to them in person.
I am transferring to Fort Leavenworth - as a military officer I take education very seriously and seek nothing but the best - I have received great support from the administrative staff and Dean of Academics - extremely helpful and vesting in my child s education and spiritual growth. IMAC is the way to go!!
