Graduated in 1971. Best education in the entire area. Philosophy of the system and educators still have an influence on my life to this day. I was well prepared in the continuance of my education. Highly recommended.
Very hard. Does not get enought credit for how hard the curriculum is. Students are much smarter than many public school kids. Not enough classes. Students don't get into the best colleges, the college they deserve.
I am an alumni and parent of Bishop McDevitt. McDevitt is the best school in the entire Capital Region including the West Shore! McDevitt has a mission to continue the Catholic Faith, we proclaim the Gospel of Christ, value each individual, and to promote self-disciplined learning in which all aspire toward lifelong personal growth.
I believe that McDevitt has a good academic program, but the faculty and administration cause way too much debate over things that do not matter and do not contribute to the education of the students. The tuition cost is outreageously high, while the school itself looks as if it has had absolutely no work done on it what so ever. Where does all of our thousands of dollars go then? The educational system may be good, but in my opinion it should be ten times better for the cost, and the rules and regulations that the students and parents need to abide by which cause too much controversy in itself.
I graduated from Bishop McDevitt in 1963. My diploma from this school is at least equal to a masters degree by today's standards. Excellent teachers and programs. I am truly thankful for the education I received at McDevitt.
Academic program is right on track! I have a sophomore there this year and will add a freshman next year. The sophomore has done very well, the programs are excellent, the atmosphere is conducive to learning. As a graduate myself, wouldn't send my children anyplace else!
