School Reviews

My children have had outstanding experiences at South Boston Catholic Academy (and, previously, St. Brigid School). They have flourished in the small classroom settings, achieved excellent academic outcomes (acceptance to Boston exam schools and private high schools) and developed skills and confidence to work toward their future goals. I found that the sense of community and the strong support of SBCA teachers definitely helped my children to become caring and productive members of society. I am not sure that they would have experienced the same academic challenge/success, sense of community or level of faculty support and guidance elsewhere.
