At ACP an A is an 94+ (common for catholic schools). However this leaves many kids with with low 90's' feeling inadequate. Only the top 10 students are ever really recognized. Unless you're extremely smart or extremely athletic you're kind of disregarded.

I'm a 10th grader attending Antonian. There are some excellent teachers and some teachers who are extremely bad, and some teachers who are too hard to be teaching high school. Atmosphere is relatively good, though there are a lot of kids that are not motivated or bright at all. Their admission standard is low. What they didn't tell me when I applied was that you have to be selected for AP classes, you can't choose them. And options are limited.

My son was bullied for being gay here so we had to take him out. Terrible community atmosphere coupled with the terrible academics, especially the math and english departments make it a complete waste of money

As a graduate of the school myself-I went to tour the school with a mind for enrolling my children. I was disappointed to see that all the investment made since my time had been in sports. The school seems to only care about the student athletes and not the others. There was little talk about academics or other activities.

My son attended ACP for two years. We finally removed him after a series of bad or no teachers. His algebra 2 teacher could only do the problems that were listed as examples in the book. In two years he never had a real English teacher. They were either on leave or fired resulting in a constant substitutes. Honors classes are based on which parent is the loudest there isn't enough room in them for everyone who deserves to be there. He is getting a much better education and more challenging classes at our local public school.

There is a good reason that ACP is known as "A Place Called Home". The students, faculty, administration, and families all work together for an outstanding high school experience. The curriculum is rigorous (classes are all at the College Prep level or above), the spiritual element is pervasive and inspiring, and the extracurriculars are open to all. We are so happy to be a part of this wonderful school.

Antonian is a very good school and the staff is there to support the students' learning. Like any school, there are soft spots and strong spots in the faculty and curriculum. The really strong part of Antonian is the environment. Students treat each other with respect and kindness. The math department is very strong, as is the Social Studies Department. Science at the higher levels needs some beefing up and rigor put in the program. The band is a bright spot and is an excellent extracurricular. Sports are led very well by the Athletic Directors. Devlynn Lovell is the best track and cross country coach I have ever seen! The comments in previous reviews about the Principal are not correct as he is in a leadership position and sometimes has to make hard decisions that some parents don't like. He is a good leader, and has put Antonian in first place!

ACP is a good school. It has many fine teachers, but it's share of bad ones too. The principal has a reputation of someone you like or hate...don't get on his bad side! He doesn't understand the need for athletics, but luckily the parents carry this load. My kids seem to enjoy the school though too often I see parents having to intervene with petty politics relating to teachers or the administration.

I have never been happier-attending this school was the best decision I ever made. Teachers are excellent as well as the academics. There are lots of sports to choose from and all have fantastic winning records. Stop by for a visit and see for yourself-this place is the place to be!
