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.
