My school is more like a family. The teachers and faculty have done everything they can to properly prepare me for college, and the "real world". I can't imagine spending 12 years of my education anywhere else. Lebanon Catholic is my home.

I graduated from LC in the 90's. The elementary school faculty is wonderful--committed & caring. I can't say enough good about them! 7th-12th grade is another story. While there are several outstanding teachers, there is very little done about bullying, especially when it's done by an athlete or a student from a well-connected family. That hadn't changed by the time my younger sister reached high school 10 years after me. The athletic students are given special treatment all the time. The Catholic values are disregarded. The compassion, especially from the administration, is nil. It was so bad that the last 2 years of high school my sister was homeschooled. What a shame--my great grandmother, grandmother, & mother had all attended LC. I would never pay over $3000/year to send my kids here.

This is where all the "bad kids" go when they get kicked out of public school. The education is sub-par and there is limited technology and science labs. The religious teachings are rigid and tolerance for non-catholic students is low. It is unacceptable that test scores are unpublished and it is easy to infer that the academic standards at this school are below average.

Lebanon Catholic School provides an outstanding education. The school is small, but top notc and provides a safe, learning environment. The teachers know the students by name, not by a number. I believe the teachers really hold the kids accountable for their education and expect them to do well. The tuition is affordable and I wouldn't send my children anywhere but LC.

It is a great school. If car line was not such a horrible time of the day, and parents would follow the rules, the rest would be great.

Excellent school providing challenging academics and caring faculty. Small class size allows teachers to focus on individual needs. K-12 campus provides mentoring interaction and a family environment. Our son thrives at this great school!

Our daughter has been there for 7.5 years so far. She's getting a great education from a committed faculty. The music and athletics are excellent.

This school offers excellent academics in a Christian environment. The kids are treated like individuals, and the teachers genuinely care about them. I would highly recommend this school.

My daughter attended Lebanon Catholic from 8th to 12th grade. They have a wonderful music department. My daughter was in the colorguard for 4 years,and she loved it. The academics are also top notch. There is a lot of parent involvement to. I would highly recommend this school.

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.
