    This school is amazing. I loved it from the start. When I shadowed a friend there the students treated me like I was a fellow student. The teachers were fantastic. The academics hard. We start each class with a prayer. After every day we pray the Chaplet of Divine Mercy in the chapel. On Mondays Wednesdays and Fridays there is Mass. The students participate in the Mass as servers or lectors. They are all very reverent. This school is truly Catholic.

    This is an excellent truly faithful Catholic school an unsung gem. Classical education Socratic method fantastic teachers family-like atmosphere small class size all combine to result in joy-filled students who learn and live their true Catholic faith and who excel academically. Recent graduates are now attending Princeton University of Wisconsin Catholic Seminary and other small colleges.
