This school doesn't have the best faculties or high-tech classrooms; we never had all the material support that other private schools enjoy. Instead this school invests much more in the human formation of the students. As an ex-student I can say that the one thing that I appreciated most was the formation we received on leadership, team-work, and personality development. These are new concepts that aren't taught in other schools, instead they're left for adults to learn by themselves (hence the huge number of "self-help" books out there). But with today's society, we can't wait till university to learn these things, because they aren't things; it's the person himself that must be studied.

It the best school for Young men that would like to become priests. At times it was rough being there but it was totally worth it even though i didnt continue on to become a priest. I learned so much, respect for others and women, charity, and everything to become a good man. Classes are small maybe 30 to 35 in each class. Up at 6am in bed at 9pm. Everything is planned for the boys and some classes that I took there you didn't see normally till collage. How many people can say they know why a^2 +B^2=C^2 and prove it before even stepping into a high level math class? The only down side was you hardly get to see your parents, maybe 3-4 times a year. It has the best veiw in the world at all times of the year.

This is the greatest school on the east coast for boys who want to become priests.

I personally attended this school for my highschool years. The curriculum is extremely high and literally exercises your brain with many memorization exercises in the various courses. I can honestly say that some courses here were much more difficult than the courses I took (equivalent to) in college. The teachers are top notch and are very devoted to student learning. The flip side to all this is of course that it is run as something of a minor seminary, putting the students in the direction of the priesthood. Due to the somewhat ridgid lifestyle, parental involvement is minimal.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

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.
