As an alumni I can recommend Stepinac. It is a college prep school so keep that in mind. If your kid is hard working then you shouldn't have any issues. If you are looking for the school to fix your kid then you need some place else.

When we looked at high schools for my son, his middle school principal said "you never hear anything bad about Stepinac, take a look." We followed his advice and we are so happy we did. It is a wonderful school. The adminstration and teachers truly care for the boys. There is much less economic or social or race stratification than the typical high school. The rich, poor, jocks and nerds are all friends. If there are problems, the administration bends over backwards to correct. The Honor Program is great. The boys develop a real bond, like a sports team. There are a wide variety of AP courses. In Junior year, the Guidance Department's SAT prep is taught as a regular class. The Guidance Department has great connections and guides the boys to appropriate colleges with merit scholarships. Parent involvement is encourage. It's been a pleasure to be part of the Stepinac family.

Very good preparation for sat's and act's for college, considering its a catholic high school. Not many good solid catholic high schools around any more The principal is a solid leader, the monsignor shows signs of good religious leadership for the young men, the athletic department is solid, As a parent, I only have positive thngs to say about Stepinac, it may of had its pitfalls in the past, but NO MORE! My son has recvd a solid education, better than I expected and religious guidance as well. Not bad for a cathollic high school, keep up the good work Stepinac, I will be recommending this high school to many young men who want a decent and proper education and an athletic program. Continue to screen families who wqnt a solid academic curriculum,athletic and religious education for their sons.

If your child comes from a public school system do not send him to this school. If your child is excited about the school and is used to the culture of catholic schools the school will be fine.

If you want your child to learn to repeat what he hears without question, send him to stepinac. If you want you son to learn and develop his own opinions, send him somewhere else.

This school is a leader maker. In today's society, we see many problems throughout the secular world. This school aids its students by way of it's all male student population. Additionally the school adds to the educational process by the instruction of personel that are accustomed to teaching at the collegiate level.

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.
