I am so glad my son is enrolled in Tampa Catholic High School. He absolutely loves going to this school, even though it is a bit far from our home. He talks about how good this school is with his cousins and community friends and is continuously motivated to learn. He loves being in sports, and this school offers the best athletic programs in the area. The academic metrics and standards are high, and I see my child learning new knowledge and thriving every day. Thank you, teachers and coaches, for being awesome and caring towards the development and growth of my teen.
