Wonderfully faithful school, dedicated staff and teachers, holy kids and families, we are so blessed to be part of this community.
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!
My kindergardner is already reading at a 2nd grade level. Our children love the school and the leadership is devout and agreeable. Everyone that I talk to loves Faustina Academy.
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 this school. The school actually cares for the kids. Something that other schools should look into. I would highly recommend this school.
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.
