Class of 2013!!! I loved this school! I got to be honest when my mother told me she was putting me in an all girls catholic school I thought it was going to be the end of the world!! I went in there with a bad attitude! But I am SO happy my parents made me to SSA! The teachers are so helpful and caring! The girls are the best. One thing I did notice there was no cliques, everyone was nice to each other, I loved that we had mass every month, and the completions we used to do with our brother school Saint Paul. I loved every day of it. If I could I would go back! GO DOVES!!!!!

I am an alum and a former teacher at SSA. I loved this school while I was attending and will always love it. This was a wonderful place to work. The community is a kind and compassionate one and takes care of its own in times of need.

Good academics, some areas better than others but overall good prep for college. I have one daughter in college and the other still at SSA.

I am student that goes to SSA right now and i am very pleased with the teachers,campus, and my education so far. I enjoy SSA a great deal becuase the other girls there are all wonderful and heart felt. Some of the girls that I have met so far will probably be my freinds forever becuase they are always there for me. However, this school is an all girls school and that is a disappointment. Oh, and before I forget, I am not Catholic, but Methodist. So don't think that you have to be Catholic to go here, becuase a lot of people who are not Catholic go here to.

My daughter goes to SSA and she LOVES it. She is a senior now and had been at SSA since 8th grade. I love the 4x4 schedule. it is a lot easier on the girls because they do not have as much homework time after school as the kids on the 7 class schedule. If you have a daughter going into 8th grade or high school, i would look into SSA. The school spirit, and unity they have is amazing!

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any teacher information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
