Fontbonne Academy was the greatest 4 years of my life. It prepared me for college and beyond. When I entered college, I was above and beyond most of my peers. I found college easy after dealing with the demands and pressure Fontbonne put on you. The teachers really cared about who you were and if you were doing well or not. They pushed for the best, not just as a student but as a person. Many of the friends I made there, I am still friends with. We have a support system after high school. Fontbonne provided the atmosphere, teachers and peers you needed to excel.
Sister Maryann could be one of the students. More than once I saw her in a Fontbonne uniform. It made it easier to talk to her about questions, concerns, and problems. But if you were in trouble and you were sent to her, you were shaking in your ugg boots that you weren't suppose to be wearing haha....
At Fontbonne, they definitely lay on the homework. There are free periods during the school day to get help with difficult subjects and finish homework. I used those and still ended up doing hours of homework at home. This being said, I was ready for college and actually found it easy after going to a high school that was as demanding as it was.
A wonderful high school experience for my daughter. Not only did she receive an excellent academic program, but in addition the values of respect, responsibility, and reverence were always reinforced. Fontbonne is a caring and close community where girls can shine!
