Very impressed with both the educational and religious instruction. As a Protestant family, it is excellent that there is an all faith education based school in Navarro County. The staff and administration are very involved with the students and highly encourage parental involvement. A+++

James L Collins Catholic School is a godsend for the Corsicana area. Children of all religious denominations are welcome. The teachers REALLY care about and love our kids. So personal and the academic level is out of this world. They've been selected the Best of the Best of Corsicana schools for the last two years. Can't say enough about how thrilled we are about the level of education, caring, discipline and the Christian process in all that they do. Parental support and networking are also phenomenal. Thank you, thank you for hanging in there during the tough economic times.

I have a grandaughter that started pre K and is also in Kindergarden she loves this school and the teaching and attention they get on studies is much much better than a public school. Collins is more than a 5 star school I hope they change and go to 12th grade in the future. The money is VERY spent for a good solid start in education. Roberta Bowyer Corsicana Tx

CCS is an amazing school. The love and support for its teachers, principal and staff are above anything I had expected. My children ask to go to school on the weekends. I would have never imagined that.

Our two children have been in Collins Catholic School since pre-k. We have been satisfied with the opportunities offered to them, and they have done well there. There is a very strong sense of community and family. We pay higher tutition because we aren't Catholic. The small classes are a plus. The teachers are underpaid but loyal.

I attended this school from first grade through fifth. This is where the seeds of anti-drug and pro-college were sewn. My daughter has attended first and now second grade. She absolutely loves it. The advantages of this school are numerous. To name a few, the classes are fairly small, therefore they recieve much one-on-one attention from the teacher. My child's first and second grade teachers are both highly qualified and wonderfully warm and interesting individuals whom my daughter adores. The principal of this school is super nice and fair, and knows each of the children in his school on a first name basis, as well as parents. This school offers religious education, as well as, the value of morality and integrity in every aspect of the ciriculum, which i find most important. It provides an innocent and safe environment where your child can grow and flourish in their own way. Wonderful!

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.
