A wonderful school to send your kids to.

When my wife and I first visited Holy Comforter I said, "I can''t imagine sending my children anywhere else." Six years later I feel exactly the same way. Holy Comforter is exceptional academically and has a uniquely caring and inviting atmosphere. I am continually amazed by the capabilities and commitment of their faculty and administration.
