School Reviews

We moved to SC and put our daughter in Cathedral Academy not knowing anything about the area. Let me tell you, this was the best decision we made. We as parents could not be any happier. The staff here and her 1st grade teacher Mrs. Braswell are top notch. My daughter excelled at her subjects and we were very happy with all she has learned. The Biblical values and Christian atmosphere are worth every penny. I knew this when my daughter recited Psalm 23 to me. We could not be prouder. I HIGHLY recommend Cathedral.

After having tried Public School, Homeschool, and another local Private Christian School, we decided to enroll our children into Cathedral Academy the day it opened. Being familiar with the church, and their Vision to journey with people to walk in the destiny that was designed for them, we made the financial sacrifice and enrolled all of our children. Our youngest just graduated last year, and all I can say is that it was worth every penny! Our children were not only prepared for college, but life as well! They were prepared academically, emotionally, and spiritually. The temptations that college can present have not been issues, because of the values that were instilled in them not only at home, but in school as well. It was wonderful to know that the staff was partnering right along with what we were teaching and training at home; Biblical values in all aspects of daily life. The teachers never hesitated to meet with us when necessary, and were always quick to respond to emails. The use of made it possible to always know our child''s grades and assignments. I HIGHLY recommend CA!!!!!!! Great Parents + Great School= Great Kids!!!!!!
