The academic standards at Hackett are outstanding. Her achievements in Latin and AP Math and Lit are well beyond what we hoped for. Our child is a junior this year and has loved attending class these last two years. The Catholic atmosphere and teachings are a blessing and the student body is less polarized than your typical public schools. My daughter is a bit of an oddball and gets no grief from any of the other students or teachers. I am from a family of public school educators and am certain that she would not be received quite so well at these institutions. The price you pay to attend Catholic schools are well worth every cent.
