St. Joan of Arc has been a great choice for our two children. Each year the administration works to give our kids the most up-to-date curriculum. This year they introduced STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) into the way of learning. The school has purchased 2 3-D printers and set up a STEAM lab for all to use. I love that they are always improving while still maintaining classical literature and math techniques. The community is warm and inviting to your entire family.

This is my family's fourth year at St. Joan of Arc School. My kids are both doing excellent with caring, dedicated teachers and I am certain that they will be fully prepared educationally & will have a smooth transition into high school. Also very important to our family was our kids being raised within a faith filled environment. My kids participate in Spanish, Computer, Music, Enrichment, Gym, Art & Accelerated Reader programs as well as having access to extracurricular activities such as Band, Drama Club, Boy Scouts and American Heritage Girls. They can participate in many different sports such as cross country, volleyball, basketball, soccer, cheer and football. Since I am a stay at home mom, one of the things that was important to me was the ability to volunteer. St. Joan of Arc welcomes participation by parents to volunteer in the library, helping in the classroom, reading to the kids, helping out in computer classes and encourages involvement in your child's learning experience. Also new this year, St. Joan of Arc assigned an Ambassador family to each new family enrolled at the school so that new parents would have a contact that could assist them with all questions that they would have, and to keep them informed about all school activities.

I have been with the SJA school FAMILY for 10 years now. I could most certainly write about all the fabulous things previously mentioned in the above reviews. But I''m going to write something that sums it up from my child's perspective; which is priceless. When my family experienced a life changing event, my middle child looked at me and one of his first concerns was this: "Can we keep going to St. Joan of Arc?" What 4th. grade boy has that as a top concern? Sometime later when the life changes continued, he looked at me and said "Will I get to keep going to St. Joan of Arc through 8th. grade?" Sure, I could rave about the wonderful attributes that have been mentioned, because yes, I agree with all of them. However, I think my child sums it up. This is their family. This is their home away from home. This is their safe zone, as well as the place that is more than preparing them for their future. I have had many friends who, after hearing me rave about the SJA family, finally witnessed the SJA family in action, and all they could say was, "Wow...now I see what you have been talking about." No one needs to look very hard to see the incredible teachers, students, families, and staff we have at St. Joan of Arc. It is an incredible community that continues to prepare our children for life in a faith based setting that is second to none.

This is our first year at St. Joan of Arc. We transferred from another local school and have been warmly welcomed by each of the students, faculty and families. Each of our kids teachers have been absolutely amazing and have checked with us periodically throughout the year to ensure our kids feel welcome and are receiving the resources they need to succeed. We are very impressed by each aspect of the school and have loved our transition! Go Warriors!

This is our second year at SJA and I can honestly say that switching schools was the best thing we did for our children. Both of our children are doing so much better in both academics and their attitude towards school. Last New Year's Eve, we asked our kids to list some good things that happened to them the last year and our son said "going to St. Joan of Arc." Our daughter concurred. There is no better affirmation than that! The administrative staff, teachers, students and their families have been very accepting and truly the best! St. Joan of Arc has been a blessing to our family!

This is our second year at SJA. We were relocated to Toledo. This was especially hard on my daughters. From the beginning SJA surrounded my girls with support and understanding. One year later, we couldn't be happier. My girls are thriving and so happy. They participate in American Heritage Girls as well as soccer. There are many activities throughout the year such as Trunk or Treat, Breakfast with Santa, Father/Daughter Dance, Mother/Son event and our annual Snowball fundraiser in which our school comes together as a family. Everyone is friendly, welcoming and even though we've only been in Toledo for 18 months, we feel at home.

This is our fifth year at St. Joan of Arc with three children currently in the school. From the beginning, St. Joan of Arc felt like a family. In the morning, there is always someone to greet the kids with a warm smile at the front entrance. The academic program is excellent and the children are challenged to think critically, problem solve, and work in teams. Spanish is even being taught at the early grades! Enrichment further challenges our children in a fun and experiential manner. Also there are services for speech and help with reading and math as needed. We are especially happy with the faith base education that St. Joan of Arc provides. Faith and values are integrated within the curriculum; faith is not taught only in religion class. There are many opportunities for extracurricular activities including sports, plays/musicals, the band, quiz bowl, Boy Scouts, and much more. We could not be happier with St. Joan of Arc.

We were relocated 2 years ago to the Toledo area. We took a tour of St. Joan of Arc and immediately felt like part of the community. SJA is a wonderful school with a variety of opportunities. The teachers my children have had are all excellent. They have had the opportunity to play various sports, starting in kindergaden. Their faith based education has been very important in their education, but the extras they get from SJA are exceptional. Band, computer, art, music, Spanish and enriched math (upper grades) are all part of the weekly schedule. The academics are great and the school as a while does a wonderful job of preparing kids with a well rounded education.

St. Joan of Arc School has been a part of our family for many years. The quality education our children have received is exceptional! Our oldest graduated from SJA and was very well prepared for high school. He was eligible for AP and Honor level classes as were many others in his graduating class. We are also pleased that our children can participate in Band, sports, enriched Math, Spanish & computer classes as part of their daily schedule. St. Joan of Arc School also provides the strong faith based environment that is very important to our family. To say we are a close community is an understatement! I have witnessed our community come together to support someone in need on numerous occasions. We are proud to be part of this family!

Scandals in private school are bound to raise questions for those of us thinking about sending our children to private school. Regardless of how sensational these scandals may appear, they are actually few and far between.
