My kids have gone to St. Catherine's for 8 years, and I currently have children in grades 2, 4, and 6. This school provides a wonderful balance of faith and superior education, a disciplined but joyful environment, and just an amazing place for kids to grow in a safe environment. The Dominican sisters are nothing like the old school nuns my parents described - they are always smiling, playing volleyball and soccer with the kids; they really KNOW and LOVE my kids. There is no place we would rather be!

St Catherines is a great school. We have 3 children there (will have 4) in grades K, 1 and 2. The Sisters run the school and it is definitely Catholic, not just in name. The school community is great, it is small enough that you get to know almost everyone but large enough so it isn't too nosey or awkward. My children are challenged, they look forward to school and the focus on family, scholastics and spirituality truly make this a great place. I can't speak for the later grades but our babysitters went to school here and I have only heard good things.

Educating our children is one of the most important tasks we are given as parents. In searching for a school for our children, our priorities were: Academic Excellence, Positive Nurturing Environment and Catholic Identity. We found these standards in spades at St. Catherine of Siena Catholic School in Kennesaw GA. For our family it truly is the best and that is because SCS alone in Georgia boasts the presence of the Nashville Dominican Sisters of the St. Cecilia Congregation. The Sisters set a standard of academic excellence while nurturing our children in their faith. As Administrators of the school, the Nashville Dominicans have a remarkable history and have been able to attract a staff equal in talent to their mission. The staff at St. Catherine of Siena is unparalleled. And finally, the SCS Community is truly an extension of the individual family. We have experienced many other schools in our family life, and there is no other community that we have ever been a part of, that can compare to the generosity of spirit, time, and treasure that exists within the community of St. Catherine of Siena. It is truly remarkable. St. Catherine of Siena School and Parish Community is the best place to live and raise a family in Georgia, no question.

St. Catherine's is a wonderful school with strong academics and spiritual components. After watching my children grow from K-8th grade, I can not imagine a more sound and loving environment for them to have gone through. The Dominican Sisters have been wonderful. I'm so thankful we've had the privilege to be part of such a great community!
