I have 2 children who attend the Academy of Saint Adalbert. One is typical and one is on the Autism Spectrum (attending the STEPS/St. Adalbert combo program). We have been very happy with all the STEP Center for Autism Staff that teach at the Academy of St. Adalbert as well as the hard working, friendly, and caring principle, secretary, librarian, and teachers in Kindergarten and Preschool. I feel like the teachers and staff are adequately trained, really listen to our concerns as parents, have an open door policy for communication, encourage parent participation in the classroom/special events, and are very sensitive to both of our children's needs. Both children are thriving this school year and are getting a well rounded education. Some improvement that would be nice includes addressing the slippery stairs during bad weather by either changing the school entrance route or adding non-skid strips/materials to the steps.

A wonderful school filled with people who care! We have one child at the Academy and another who graduated recently. Our older child is a very successful high school honors student at a catholic high school. The education they each have received is second to none. Both have benefitted from individualized attention and advanced opportunities available due to the co teacher model . We also value the priority that the school places on affirming our catholic values especially thru the Stewardship program. This is a school that makes everyone feel welcome and embraces children as individuals who have different learning styles and needs to achieve their personal best.. If you are looking for a school to help your children grow, you should not only visit St. Adalbert but also allow your children to shadow in a classroom to really experience the difference! Then talk to a parent.

As a parent, I absolutely LOVE this school. The staff really cares and my son is getting more help in the areas where he needed help. Academically, it is above where he was in the public system. The Community Stewardship Program is wonderful - - each grade has a theme (feeding the Hungry is 2nd Grade). And the prinicipal is FANTASTIC. I reviewed other area schools and picked the Academy of St. Adalbert because of the focus on the individual student; the principal and teaching staff; academic focus and loving / caring atmosphere.

The Academy of Saint Adalbert has been instrumental not only in my son's academic success thus far but also his social development. He started as a teary eyed kindergarten student and quickly found that the caring community embraced him. He is now outgoing and has already developed close friendships! This is a place that is truly a community and everyone is focused on the all-around development of the child.

We love the one on one education that our boys are receiving in a small school. They are making good lasting friendships and know what Jesus means in their lives.

The Academy of St. Adalbert is unique in its size and 'Family feel.' You don't get 'lost' in a sea of other children...instead you feel a kinship with not only your classmates, but all the other grades as well. We love it!!

Teaching children real life values and teaching them how to use those values in everyday life. What a concept!


Posted April 28, 2010

My child has attended the Academy of St. Adalbert in Berea since she started preschool. The individual attention, family like atmosphere and educational standards are second to none in the area. The small class sizes ensure individual attention which is so important in today's society when most public schools are laying off teachers and increasing class sizes making it impossible for children to learn.

They focus on individual's strengths and teach accordingly. This approach enables children to reach for the best within themselves and believe that they can achieve what ever they can dream of.

My daughter has been attending St. Adalberts in Berea since kindergarten. Now she is in the 4th grade and we couldn t be more pleased. The teachers, principal and staff have gone way beyond my expectations. The care, dedication, and commitment they have towards our children is unmatched. The tuition is more than reasonable and helps parents that are on a tight budget afford to send their children to a school where they not only receive the best education, but also a strong moral and ethic foundation.

St. Adalbert school maybe small in size, but our spirit is larger than life. Please come and join our 'family' community where the theme 'Walk with Jesus' is in the hearts and minds of the students, teachers, staff and parents.

The teacher to student ratio is very low, the kids get plenty one on one time with the teachers. They are always availble for extra help and willing to discuss the student's progress with the parents.

This school IS a small school with a great big heart! It combines academics with compassionate, challenging faculty who really do care about their students, and the administration is top notch! We are blessed to have a highly-motivated, hands-on principal who instills both Christian values and morals and encourages the students to excel.

I love the Academy of St. Adalbert. Not only am I teacher, but my son graduated from the school a few years ago. It was a great school for him who helped to develop his education and talents.

Not only does the school teach the academics but they also develop the spirit. The children are learning to accept all kids and at the same time helped to reach their own potential. THey Walk with Jesus every day.

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.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
