Lex Cath helped my son score high enough on the Asphab to become an engineer, and football training more difficult than boot camp. My daughter has found college to be very easy comparitively. Thank you to all who supported them in their achivements. To Headmaster: God has a special crown for you!

Catholic really gives a high quality education. It has provided for me a challenging experience that has prepared me well for college in a welcoming, friendly environment. You never have to worry about a fight or any safety problems either. Extracurricular activities, and sports programs are great, too. Overall, a really outstanding experience.

I have been extremely happy with the education my child has received at Lexington Catholic. The teachers are great, the students are friendly and intelligent, the sports programs are top-notch, the drama department is outstanding, and the guidance counselors does an amazing job helping students through the college admissions process. I would recommend Lexington Catholic to any parent lokking for the best possible high experience for their child.

This school doesn't have as many clubs and other extracurricular activities. But it is very safe and encouraging.

My child has had a wonderful education from this school. Catholic has supported her and all she has done and put forth efforts to expand on who she is on the inside and out.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
