Accurate rating is difficult-this is a school you either love or hate. Traditional Catholic elementary and high school that promotes a classical liberal education. They do a good job maintaining a healthy learning environment and providing a "general purpose" education that will prepare kids for a wide array of college and career choices. They are somewhat strict with the children, not tolerating questionable behavior. They put an extremely high emphasis on the Catholic part of their education, so be forwarned if you are non- or nominally Catholic. On the other hand, this culture also leaves very little room for the students to get into mischief, so that is good. The school is small and has few resources. Quality of teachers varies widely. There is no shop class, band, AP courses, or computer center. Art and music are practically non-existent. Heavy focus on Latin and Religion. Very few options available in course offerings. In short, I think the school is great for authentic Catholic faith and reading/writing/comprehension skills, but lacks in their ability to challenge gifted students, offer support for remedial students, or provide any type of exposure to modern technology.

Holy Angels has provided an excellent Catholic education to my children for the last 22 years, from kindergarten through high school! Catholic life permeates the entire school day - not just the religion and catechism classes. The classical education has prepared our children for the rigorous study and critical thinking that has been demanded of them in their academic and professional pursuits. Needless to say we have been extremely pleased academically, but more importantly, spiritually. Our sons who have graduated have gone on to excel in college, graduate school and their professional careers. These adult sons have remained loyal orthodox practicing Catholics, sharing the truth about Catholicism to those they encounter. We look forward to witnessing the same success for our youngest children as they take their Holy Angels education and experience with them.
