There is not another school in central Ohio which offers boys the education provided by St. Charles Preparatory School. St. Charles educates the entire child - intellectual, emotional, and spiritual. The school does all it can to ensure all children are educated - not just those with great GPAs. The boys are encouraged to stretch themeselves as they learn academically. They are also encouraged to be of service to others. At St. Charles, I have found that they are indeed their 'brothers keeper' and the entire village assists in raising the child! Again, there is no better place for a young man to learn about himself and the world during these teen years than St. Chalres!
This school transformed me from a kid with a dream into a dedicated student who has the tools needed to achieve his goals. I cannot use strong enough words to make people understand that if you want to become something, go here, work hard, embrace the culture and you will come out ready for anything. I now go to one of the top 10 Business schools, in the world, and have found it easy to get good grades and balance my time. I have gotten great internships and am well on my way to landing my dream job on Wall Street. This is the typical story from a St Charles man. This school will prepare you for anything and will make you work harder than you will ever have to in the real world. This preparation dooms one for greatness.
my son's experience here was terrific; he was surrounded by other students with similar abilities and he was able to focus on academics rather than be bogged down by social issues (girls, etc)
My son was given a excellent education and now attends an ivy league college where he is florishing. Not only are the academics top notch, but he made what will be life long friendships. He was challenged to develop his character and his faith as well. St. Charles is an amazing school and we are grateful.
The school is exceptional. The staff is fair and supportive of all students. My son has grown as a student and a young man. I don't think you will find a finer school for your son.
I have one son who graduated from SC, and one there now. The Academics are very strong -- no other school in the area can compare. An A in a class at SC is much different than an A from other central Ohio high schools. This is an excellent school for young men who want to be prepared for college. My older son went into college with over 40 credits earned from AP testing and college classes taken during HS. Down sides -- such a rigorous academic schedule doesn't leave much time for a social life or just free time. At times this is very difficult for this age of student (gr.9-12) and their parents. More support and understanding from the faculty regarding this would help a lot.
From what I can tell after just 4 weeks of my son going here, the school is an academic juggernaut. Nothing else in Columbus comes close.
Best high school in Columbus. It used to make a good student out of an average student. Now an average student can't get in or stay in and that is a shame.
