We have 4 children who attend SCS and we have loved every minute of our experience at this amazing school! Our eldest has been there now for almost 9 years!! The sense of community is one of the main reasons we have our kids at SCS! During these tough economic times SCS never seizes to provide the most affordable catholic education in the area! The faculty and teachers are more like family as they look out for our children just like we would ourselves.If you are considering placing your child or children in SCS please know that they will be well taken care of and taught not only an amazing education, but also taught what it means to be a faithful person and part of a community that looks out for each other! Thank you SCS for all you provided and continue to provide our children!!!

We moved both of our Sons to St Catherine for different reasons. The school has been a fantastic place for them to learn. We feel as though the teachers have really motivated them to become very strong learners. Now that we have experienced the Catholic school environment, we feel as though they have the ability and knowledge to get through high school and go to a good college.

St Cathernie is a wonderful school. We moved our Son to the school a year ago in 5th grade. He went from a boy that we really struggled with academically. He now is no longer in need of an I?I.E.P. He has become a very confident boy with a very caring personality. We moved him from a top five public school . We are so happy with the school. Our son says he is the happiest he has ever been.
