Archbishop Rummel has become a home away from home a second family. Rummel has proven to be a safe place to learn and grow for my two sons. It has prepared my children for college. (ACT - 24 & 26) Both of my sons were accepted into the college of their choice. Rummel has Reinforced our family beliefs and taught them to be lead by example with strong Christian values. My oldest son graduated in 2007 and is now a mechanical engineer. My youngest son is in still in college. Both of my children experienced friendships that will last a life time. I highly recommend the Rummel High School experience!

Archbishop Rummel has been a fantastic environment for my three boys to learn and thrive. The faculty genuinely care about each student and are very dedicated. My boys are excited to get up for school each morning. The focus on community, service and leadership as well as fostering Christian values is alive and thriving at Rummel. The recent addition of Brother Gale and Brother Michael have given the students and faculty a real shot in the arm! I am pleased with the well rounded education my boys are receiving at Rummel. I strongly recommend this school to others.
