I found this institution to be a discrace to the Catholic Pricipals of the Church. An indifferent administration and half truths in the name of profit are the cornerstones of this institution. We went to sign up at the school and was given all manner of glad handing and pseudo support about funding. They got all of our financial records UP FRONT so they knew what situation we were in; then they hit us with the non refundable registration fee. They told us there was all manner of aid and scholarships etc etc, then we get a bill for thousands of dollars, set up through some shady collection organization with a fee for that! After realizing we had been misdirected we asked for our registration fee returned. We didn't have thousands of dollars, they knew this when they took the fee. My position is that they knew we probably didn't have the cash, but soaked us for the fee anyway. Then we told them we could not come and would not be registering, and they kept the cash for the registration fee!! They said, "sorry but it's non refundable, it was clearly stated in your packet". We told them we were in trouble with money and they replied,m"We have never done that before, it is non refundable". Yes, non refundable, if we started at the school and pulled out, or if we moved, or some other reason, but we were misled about aid, and our child never even set foot on campus for a classss! This school is a den of thieves. They take the good name of the Church and further tarnish it with bamboozlery and greed. They know we are in dire straights financially, and still decided to keep our money. Money it took us two months to get together to try to get our child into a school where faith and Christianity are SUPPOSED TO BE the core standards. This school is a discrace to the Catholic culture and just one more anchor keeping the church from rising above its challenges. The worst part about it is, they probably don't see anything wrong with taking money from a poor family for their own profit and greed, they will attend mass and not lose a minutes sleep. Well it takes more than kneeling to get to heaven, and he sees your works. This place is dispicable.
