How many parents have a peace of mind when it comes to where their kids are attending high school? I can honestly say that we do! This school and leadership are above all expectations! The staff is knowledgeable, friendly and has our kids best interests at heart! The families are made up of like-minded individuals when it comes to what is most important-the continued faith formation! More importantly, the leadership and faith direction from this principal is OUTSTANDING! Our kids are learning how to live in this world, not be "of this world"!

Smaller class sizes allow teachers to work more closely with students and enhances the students' education. Excellent opportunities to participate in sporting activities regardless of student sporting skills (i.e. everyone gets the opportunity to participate)

This school builds the "Culture of Life" character in each student. Very Prolife and Profamily school. Amazing teachers, instructors and familes.

Great school, good family values and strong academics! Everyone gets to participate in athletics and these programs are character building as well.

Wonderful little school, where both values and academics are only rivaled by the motivation, dedication, and skills of the faculty. Communication is encouraged and teachers' availability and readiness to listen is second to none. We have the piece of mind that the values we instill into our children at home are paralleled and reinforced at school. This school is simply a blessing!

I love that this school promotes learning, high morals, and serving others. My elementary-age children are now holding doors open for me and being more helpful without any signs of disrespect. The projects they do for class help them to use resources outside their textbooks. The field trips work in tandem with their lesson plans. Parents are highly encouraged to be involved at the school. The small class size promotes better relationships among the students.

Our children have been at Faustina Academy for 3 years, and we love it! We have a high schooler, junior high student, and an elementary age student. All three children are receiving an amazing education as well as the formation that they need to help them become kind, good, and honest adults! The tuition is very affordable and the teachers are AWESOME!!

Faustina Academy is small, has a great sports program and they truly care about each child. My children love it here and have been here since the doors opened. Two of my children have graduated from here and they are both doing really well in College, so this school has prepared them.

Our family was seaking a school three years ago that was Catholic and one we could afford having a larger family. We were more than welcomed with loving arms. We have appreciated the conservative maintained standards the school and contributing families together try to uphold. The education is classical and our 4 children have excelled and learned so much these past 3 years. Much is kept clear, simple and to the point when it comes to academics, activities which is so nice in this age of so much noise and distractions. Sports are available as are other extracurricular activities. We have greatly appreciated the overall experience our children and family has had while being a part of the Faustina community. Definitely a find.

This may be a great school IF your already enrolled. They aren't very accepting to potential families though. Conversation over the phone: Me: Hi, I was wanting to see if your accepting new students in grades- (interrupted) Receptionist: -No we're full. Me: I didn't tell you what grades I needed yet. Receptionist: ...Oh...Well...What grades did you need? Me: 9th and 11th Receptionist: No, we're full. Me: Hm. Really? How many students to you allow per class? Receptionist: Um....15 Me: How many do you have in the 9th grade now? Receptionist: I don't know. Me: Can you check? Receptionist: Um...Sure....(long pause) Well....there's 12 in there right now. But it's full. That teacher won't take any new students. Me: I thought you said the class limit was 15. Receptionist:.....Well...It is... but we're all full. Sorry. Makes me wonder what kind of "Christian" values they're teaching the kids. Certainly not honesty.

My Son has attended Faustina Academy the past 4 years. This school has been the best place to have our son educated. Faustina has the traditional College Prep education which is not watered down or hyped up with non essential busy work. True formation is actively lived and taught, not just printed and advertised. The teachers, staff and families are all the role models one would choose for their child. Most importantly, excellent leadership by the Principle who devoutly follows God's will. Because all of this takes place, the students at Faustina respect and care about each other. There is no bullying or ridicule, just true christian behavior. The Holy Spirit is truly present in this school! If you are looking for a great education, a safe and respectful environment with solid catholic values this place is for your children. We are very blessed to have this academic treasure in our Irving community.

My children have been attending Faustina Academy since they opened their doors 10 years ago. This school is one of a kind! Great academics, excellent devoted teachers and most importantly like minded families! It is like one big happy family! They offer all kinds of sports and fun events that the kids look forward to all year around. It truly is a school that is too good to be true and an answer to our prayers.

Superb place. Great families, dedicated staff, holy atmosphere. They won't win the state football championship, but if you are more concerned with getting your kids into heaven than into Harvard, this is the place to be. We love it.

I've been here for 9 years, and I love it! I've been here since the doors opened up, in Pre-K, and am planning on graduating here too! There aren't words that can sum up how much I love the school. It's small, but that means more attention for your children! The teachers care for the students, unlike other Public schools, and/or Private schools. If your looking for attention for your child, this is the PERFECT place! Their website: faustinaacademy.com. Love it!

I have been a student at Faustina Academy since the school opened its doors in 2003, and I am going to be graduating in May. I can wholeheartedly recommend Faustina Academy to anyone who wants their child to have the best education possible in a safe environment. Also, despite the fact that the school is Catholic, they do welcome other denominations. Parents, please give Faustina Academy a chance!

Finally! A small school...Like a huge happy family. I am so sick of big schools. The bigger the school, the bigger the chance of your child mixed in with rotten kids! No thanks. What kids today are exposed to is shocking! And the kids at Faustina are of like mind and so innocent. Perfect! Is there such a thing as a perfect school? Well there is now.

I love Faustina Academy so much that I moved from another city to be closer. visit their website at www.faustinaacademy.org. There is not enough room here for me to tell you everything that we like about the school. School goes from Pre-K all the way through 12th. Thank you, Scott Killian

This school is absolutely perfect. The students are all so respectful and kind to each other. The families are so involved and active in doing whatever they can for the school. It is a wonderful disciplined, christian atmosphere at all times. Everyone that goes here loves it. The teachers are not only qualified but passionate about what they teach and the education program is designed to challenge everyone to their potential. As a parent, you couldn't ask for anything better especially when your child can't wait to go to school every day.
