This school is great! There is a brotherhood like no other and the staff are like a second family to me. You get a great education and the expectations are high so that you can excel and be your best! You are not just another student you're a part of a team, family and long term friends. I would definitely recommend this school!!

Culture is not very healthy for learning. The school is a dinosaur stuck in old unhealthy views.

This school is truly something special. The bond that you will create with all of your fellow classmates is nothing short of true brotherhood. The teachers really get to know each student, and challenge them individually. The teachers are required to stay in their classrooms from the end of school (2:45) til 3:15, for tutoring, and extracurriculars don't start until 3:30 so that students can attend tutoring. Students are pushed not only as students but as individuals, to develop into manhood and reach their full potential, long after they graduate. The school partners with companies to give graduates internships in their fields, and the experience they need. Because of the all boy environment, there is no 'popular group' and every student can find something they are interested in through sports, clubs and activities; and are pushed to leave their comfort zone and discover who they are as a person. Students come from all over, wisconsin to orono, and from all views and walks of life. If you are worried about tuition, the school gives a ton of grants. I remember reading that about 1/3 of the students have financial aid. I would highly recommend sending your son to STA.

Probably one of the best high schools in the country. Not only does it build character and challenge its students, it is one of the best places for boys to make memorable lasting friendships. If that isn't enough, last year the average ACT score among the graduating class was a 27. That's extremely high for a school average. Most kids receive ample scholarships from colleges as well.

This school is very special! All three of my boys have attended there. It is a challenging school, which builds character and a goal for excellence in academics. They leave this school with a firm moral compass and the tools to be a leader in this challenging world that we live in.
