This was the best decision we made for our daughter. Exemplifies the true meaning of a Catholic Education with the support of Parish and staff. The administration is always trying to find ways to improve and excel beyond what is expected. The school also has a great athletic program and dedicated volunteers to make it successful every year. It is truly like one big family. Love this school.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
