This is by far a superior education. It teaches the boys how to think outside the norm, study diligently, and be supportive of their classmates. It also teaches them how to give back in whatever profession they choose. Truly a top notch education and school.

Gem in nyc for brightest Catholic boys. Money can`t buy you in but once in you`ll learn much about men for others. Country needs more of this type of school.

Five stars!!! My son graduated in 2017 and despite the fast pace and academic pressure, he loves the school. Occasionally when I asked if some students were bullied, the answer always was: no, and the other students would never tolerate it. I believe that the level of intelligence in everyone there, across the board, makes it a prime learning environment.
