A religious based education is what I see most adolescents need in there life guidance plays a huge role in the maturity process. I chose a catholic school over public because of the value of an individual. I feel all children are created equal at SCCS. My child attempted public school in kindergarden and was pinned pointed from day one, we then chose to send him back and it was the best move we ever made. The school made him fit in regardless of what happened they actually gave him the opportunity to prove the public school wrong which was very easy considering all he needed was to be challenged. They were smart enough to figure that out right away. I am very proud of my choice of school. A person has to become involved in there school, so many wonderful things can happen.Read Full Review

Academics are great at this school, though religion is intertwined in all aspects (this can be good or bad as a child ages). Parents could definately be better involved and included more. Teachers and Principal are helpful, but they only go so far. I feel my child could get the same or better education from a public school. So why pay more or travel? kids at this school sometimes dress and act inappropriate. If your child has not had much social experiences, or not involved in this community I would not send my child here. People from outside the community are treated just as that--outsiders. Some teachers are great and well educated, others--not very friendly, emotionally indurate and self-absorbed. Thus, being negative role models. I feel many parents are fooled by the religious picture, when really it is just an average school with an obsession for church members pocket books.Read Full Review
