School Reviews

  • Recommended April 14, 2014 - We feel so blessed to be able to send our child to a school that is run by the amazing Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. Any parent that attends the daily mass at SSA will experience the joy in seeing that innocence is not lost in our youth. The teachers are incredible and the education is unparalleled!! - Posted by Parent
