This school has transformed the Faith and character of my children. There are no words to describe the education they are getting. Sr. Maria Faustina is unparalled to any principal in this country and has many gifts for striking balance in the school community for the benefit of the children. But don't expect this to be academically easy- this is challenging inside and out- but your family will be the better for it! Diamond in the rough.

We feel so blessed to be able to send our child to a school that is run by the amazing Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. Any parent that attends the daily mass at SSA will experience the joy in seeing that innocence is not lost in our youth. The teachers are incredible and the education is unparalleled!!
