This is truly a great school. I am sad that my daughter will be graduating from 8th grade this year, her last year with Angelus. We have been with Angelus since my daughter was in kindergarten. Everyone knows each other, students, teachers and parent volunteers and have a very kind and have a mutual respect and loving rapport with each other. Truly a gem of a school...one of a kind really.
Dynamic! Engaging! Small!. Faith-filled! After more than 5 years at Angelus Academy, I have observed that the small K-8 environment creates an intellectual, social and spiritual synergy that benefits the children in the way that education should. I have seen it in my children,but I now that my daughter is in High School, I see the fruits of this education in her and her peers 10-fold. This small school with unimpressive facilities is very fruitful. Small also means that noone can be left behind, especially in the class room. The outstanding teachers engage everyone. You can't hide! Thankfully our children are allowed to talk about their faith, sing praise to God, and pray for one another fearlessly. They take that confidence with them wherever they go. And it shows intellectually, spiritually, physically and psychologically. It's worth all of the sacrifices. And I now see that on a daily basis with my teenagers.
Angelus Academy is a traditional, independent NAPCIS Catholic school that follows the Core Knowledge Curriculum. The academics are rigorous, and the teachers have cultivated a strong love of learning in my children. The family atmosphere and dedication of the teachers and staff in transmitting the Catholic faith to the students are readily apparent there. Morning prayers, the Angelus at noon, and final prayers before dismissal structure the students' day, and the development of Christian virtues are an important part of their education. The students have an uncommon innocence and respectfulness.
Angelus Academy is a great school!!! I have been here for almost 9yrs. The teachers are so nice!! mi class have 12 students. it might seem small but all the teachers are nice and know u very well... By the way its a Catholic school, that teaches us about our religion and faith. Hope u gys will come and support our school. thanks , a student in Angelus Academy
The clsses are small between 10 and 20. Core knowledge curriculum is challeging. Tuition resonable. Catholic, but not diocesean school. Children go to chapel daily. No cafeteria. But, everyone knows your name and the teachers love their mission and the kids.
