As parents we are very happy with St. Monica Academy. Our child is currently a student at St. Monica. and absolutely loves the school, classmates, and teachers. There is a strong academic program that incorporates an environmental focus, STEM, and faith. We are having a great experience with the principal, teachers, and school community. We recommend St. Monica Academy as an excellent option for a child's growth both academically and spiritually.

We sent our child to St. Monica specifically for preschool. We are still here two years later. The community, student teacher ratio, SEEDS curriculum, and daily student led broadcasting are just the few things that kept us at St. Monica Academy. We couldn't be happier.
