Bishop Foley Catholic provides the students with an opportunity to excel academically, as well as spiritually! The teachers & staff are very caring and personable. Many extracurricular activities are available, which helps build bonds amongst students. There is truly a sense of involvement! The school is so family-oriented. I feel secure sending my sons there. I cannot say enough good things about BFC!

Excellent private Catholic school in the Lasallian tradition. My father, two brothers and I all graduated from DLS. Strong academic program. Varied extracurricular offerings. Values-based learning environment. Prepares young men well for college and life. I am an advocate and supporter.
