School Reviews

As Christian parents who have spent over 13 years in the local public high school system with 4 of our 5 children and have transferred the 4th child along with our 5th child into YCHS, we can't praise this school enough. The faculty is caring and the education and the opportunities in this regard surpass the public High school our older children attended. At this point about half the school is Catholic and the other half are Christians of other faiths. Though we are not Catholics ourselves, we appreciate prayer being said in every class and Christian standards being taught. Both the students and parents are to give 20 hours service as a requirement every year. I love that service is not only taught but lived by students and their families. Serving together brings unity to the students and their families. The tax credit programs make the tuition possible for those of us that couldn't attend otherwise. Our family loves YC!
