I didn't get accepted into St. Ignatius, but was fortunate to have found my true home at Padua. My grades have improved because of the excellent curriculum and Franciscan values. The academic rigor is fair and balanced. The teachers are not overbearing and don't push too hard. It was easy to make the transition because everyone is more or less like me.
