Great School! The teachers and faculty are wonderful. The boys are encouraged to be leaders and thinkers on a daily basis. Wonderful music and sports program which the boys are also encouraged to explore and excel at.

Matt and I wish to express our most sincere appreciation for all you do to make St. Aloyisus such a wonderful, learning experience for our son. From the welcoming signs up the driveway to the inspiring emails to parents, you and your staff of excellent teachers, have made us feel like we are finally home. When my son, Matt, got in the car yesterday, I asked him how his first day went. I was elated when he said, "It was great! The best day ever. It was awesome!" In all his years of gradeschool, Matt never felt that happy. Thank you for providing my son and our entire family with this experience. We look forward to two wonderful years at St. Aloyisus!

St. Aloysius Academy is an amazing school. When my husband and I started the search, I did not anticipate sending them to an "all-boys" school, but after one visit to St. Aloysius, we knew this is where we wanted to send our boys. Every aspect of a child's development is nurtured in this school. My sons are learning in such a well-balanced environment: art, language, gym, karate, and music. You will not find a better a better music program in grammar school. What is really unique is that so many of the boys are involved in the music program, making it "the norm" which I am not sure would happen if my sons were in a co-educational environment. And lastly, I would like to comment on the values that the Sisters and faculty instill in our boys. It is second to none. Such values are more important than ever in today's world. Saint Aloysius truly teaches our young boys how to become men, but also teaches them how to do so by being gentleman.

St. Aloysius Academy provides excellent academic instruction at each grade level. This instruction is academically challenging and encourages each student to strive for success. The cross curriculum expands the individual's mind and develops creative instincts to further explore other avenues. The grounds are simply breathtaking, welcoming all to the campus. The families, by example, are an inspiration to their sons and offer much support to the community.

As a parent of a recent graduate and a current student I would strongly recommend considering St. Aloysius Academy for you son. The school has an excellent academic program and a strong emphasis on service and leadership. St. Aloysius prepares boys to be young men of solid Christina values.
