Bishop Foley Catholic High School is a loving, and supportive community. I am a proud member of the Foley Family!

We are in our 2nd year at Bishop Foley, and our experience has been absolutely fantastic. From the faculty and staff, to the students we have come in contact with as well as the families involved at Bishop has been a true blessing to our son and our family. We have seen our son grow spiritually, academically and athletically during his time at Foley. One ringing endorsement of Foley is the number of alum who have come back to teach at Foley. There is a tremendous amount of pride at the school that shows in everything they do for our kids. I highly recommend Foley for a Catholic based education that truly prepares them from life beyond high school.

Bishop Foley is an excellent institution. The teachers care about the students- it shows on a daily basis. They have a strong Catholic identity- by far better than most- and the students love the retreats done by Fr Gerry when they say "undeniably Catholic"... they truly mean it. I would definitely send my children there. I also like the fact that it is culturally diverse.

Bishop Foley was a great high school experience for me. Raised Catholic, I shared classes with Catholics and non-Catholics. It speaks for itself when another religious denomination chooses a Catholic school for all it offers when it comes to education and discipline. When I entered college, a professor asked me if I went to parochial school because it showed. I wasn't the brightest student or the most academically disciplined when I graduated from BFC, but I noticed in college just how much more ready I was by the comparison and how much I really learned outside of my education that served as excellent tools for my college years. The term 'Foley family' is not a myth. It's real and lifelong. Go Ventures!

I had an overall great experience at Bishop Foley. Natalie had a great staff of teachers that were great at what they did but they truly cared about students well-being.

We had 3 children attend Bishop Foley and 10 nieces and nephews. We were so pleased with the school`s academic and personal aspects of life. They continued to carry on the faith and traditions we instilled in them, along with dignity and respect to all. One of our daughters met her future husband there when she was a freshman, and they`ve now been married for 20 years and have 2 of their 3 children attending there, too. Thank you for keeping the standards we have always lived by and taught our children the most important things in life....God, family and love for one another.

Bishop Foley provides an opportunity for ALL students to excel academically, with AP and Honors classes, spiritually, and athletically. Opportunities for band, vocal music and outstanding art courses allow students to demonstrate their God given talents.

Our children's education is a critical concern. That's why we elected to send our kids to private school in the first place. However, this COVID-19 virus is controlling everything. And it will continue to do so indefinitely until we have vaccines to protect us. With that in mind, here are five things you need to do when you are a parent with children in private school during this horrific pandemic.
If you are thinking about private school for your child in the aftermath of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, you should exercise even more due diligence than you usually would. More here.
