I am an alum of Hafey from 2001. This was simply a great experience. I learned so many lessons here, not only academic, but also on LIFE. It's such a mistake to close this school. God bless those kids there now struggling with that.

My children thank me all the time for sending them to Bishop Hafey. They are both fully involved in the school and actively participate in Sports and other extra curricular activities. The class sizes are small and as a result there is more individual attention. I would highly recommend it to anyone in the thinking of sending their children there.

We are new to the school, but it is very welcoming and seems like a great place to be.

I am a graduate of BHHS; the education at Hafey is wonderful. Definitely better than anything you would receive at Hazleton High. Also the atmosphere is one of friendship, academics and unsurpassed willingness to help from staff and students. Parent involvement, clubs, activities, sports and Academics are through the roof. Thank you Hafey for preparing me for life.

Exceptional school. Very affordable. Compared to the public school system in Hazleton, Hafey is the only choice. Promotes respect, family and Christian values, and academics.

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.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
