De Sales High School5

I had a son graduate this year and am very proud of the results. The school was very supportive and provided a nurturing environment of which to prosper. My son was awarded several thousands of dollars to attend college. He will go on to play football and eventually join the military to pursue aviation.
DeSales High School is an all male school that offers small environment where individual learning styles are taken into consideration. The small environment also allows for students with learning differences to recieve accommodations in the regular classroom to meet thier learning needs. DeSales won the 2007-2008 Beacon of Hope Award from the Learning Disabilities Association of KY for the non specialized school to meet the needs of students in inclusive situations.
My son graduated from DeSales in 1993. I think it was the perfect school for him. Instead of being a 'small fish in a large pond', he was able to fit in well, and eventually establish himself as a leader in his class. He had no trouble being included in extra-curricular activities. You don't have to be Catholic to attend, but good moral values are stressed to all students, by all the teachers. Strong in academics & extra-curriculars. The teachers are all very caring, and act like a substitute parent while the boy is away from home. Well worth the money spent. Highly recommended.
We have had 2 sons graduate from De Sales, and we feel we could have not sent them to a finer school to change them from little boys into fine young men. The faculty is dedicated to preparing them for the rest of their life, be it college, the military, or the work force. If we had 20 more sons, they would all go to De Sales!
