As a parent and teacher at Central VT Catholic School, I would not trust the education of my children to anyone other than my colleagues. Come visit us anytime and you will want us to educate your children too!

CVCS has the most dedicated caring teachers - far more engagement than the public school system. My children went through the public school system and my grandchildren (all three) are in CVCS. Hope they will go through 8th grade. MS

My daughter has been at St Monica's school for pre-school, K and 1st. We have a wonderful school, our children has great respect for the staff and most of all each other. Our small class size is great and allows for great learning. We have wonderful staff that are there for our children certainly not pay. I am thankful that we have the opportunity to have this great school. As I've told parents before, families thing nothing about paying for a great college, why not invest in a great beginning also.

Quite simply, this school is the best out there. It offers amazing curriculum, with St. Monica students placing consistently higher than students of other schools. The teachers and staff are helpful and will come to know each student and family member on a first name basis. I couldn't ask for more for my children.

While this school is a wonderful alternative to public school, it fails to offer many things a public school does. My child has enjoyed her time at St. Monica School, and has grown to have a true devotion to religion because of her time at school. However, I feel this school does not meet the needs of children who are not capable of keeping up with their class. Children who are not able to keep up, simply fall behind and are not given the extra attention and direction they need. There is no 'Special' assistance for those children who need it unfortunately. Also, on a lighter note, uniforms do make things simpler, but they need to be Updated to reflect our current styles, Please!

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.

What makes a great teacher? Study after study shows the single most important factor determining the quality of the education a child receives is the quality of his teacher. Here are some characteristics to look for »
