I graduated in 1964 and the basis they gave me has always been there for me in my professional life along with what I learned at Seton Hall afterward.

Amazing school. Much better academically than St Peters and Don Bosco. Worth the money. St Peters won't prepare for an elite college nearly as well as Bergen Catholic.
