As a former student, I can testify that the formation and education offered at Christian Brothers are second to none in the city of New Orleans. Their guidance has led me to become valedictorian of Jesuit, one of the best private schools in the nation.
I am a graduate ('71) and my son just graduated ('03). As demanding as Christian Bros. is academically, as a parent I could always see that the goal of all of the faculty was my son's success. Even more than his accademic success, thought, they were emotional and spiritual development. It is a wonderful (almost magical) small religious school that conveys to the boys that they should always live with Jesus in their hearts.
The school is set in City Park. It has a hands-on approach to providing a safe, caring, challenging and motivating atmosphere with an accelerated academic curriculum. It offers extracurricula activites from athletics and arts to community service and leadership training. It was a wonderful family experience after making the adjustment to the challenge!
