This is an amazing school. The music program is as good as any in the world, and indeed the choristers tour the world (both domestically and internationally). All students receive extensive musical training in voice, violin, and music theory, and students are also offered optional private lessons (on campus) in other instruments. Top choristers are full working musicians, with a full program of services at the cathedral. We are not Catholic but we've found this an amazing opportunity. However, it is a serious time commitment and may not be for all children.The academics are fine, sports aren't great, the main building is very beautiful, the chapel is excellent, science education is pretty sound, and the community is wonderful. But none of this is why you choose the Madeleine Choir School. The whole point of going here is to get a musical education as well as that at St. Thomas's (New York) or Westminster Abbey School (UK). Everything else is window dressing.
