My son just finished the first semester of his freshman year, and I can't say enough about how amazing this school has been for him. There really is something special about what they do at the school. I was hesitant about sending him to a religious all boy's school because we are not very religious, but it's nothing like we expected. They know how to develop boys with great character, and it shows. It also doesn't look like much from the outside, but don't let that fool you. There is much more to it than meets the eye. I encourage you to take a tour and meet some of the students and faculty to really see what it's like.

My sons love this school. I love this school. The teachers really seem to care about the students and focus on preparing them for higher education. There are numerous clubs and extracurricular activities for a variety of interests - Taiko drums, STEM program, and all the major sports. There is also a lot of parent involvement and volunteer opportunities.
