“Besides an excellent education, one of the most important criteria we had in choosing a school for our children was that we would feel a strong sense of community and support. When our 6-year old son was diagnosed with cancer, we expected his teacher would watch out for him, but we didn’t expect the whole school to rally behind us! It was such an amazing and heartfelt experience! It still brings tears to my eyes when I think of all the daily prayers he received, the cards, the friendly smiles, the kind words from students, families, teachers and staff for our son -and daughter, too!  We felt genuine care and concern from people we didn’t even know! How amazing to be in an educational environment such as this one where they teach compassion, generosity and love for others! We are convinced that we are in the right place and that this school really teaches and delivers the message of caring for others.”

“I have always believed it is a unique experience to play sports for your school.  It’s a little different than playing for your town or association….it’s special.  Not all kids these days will have the chance to play sports in high school.  So, as a coach and parent at Frassati, I truly value that Catholic Schools offer that type of opportunity in Middle School.  It not only helps build confidence and provide kids with chance to experience teamwork, it also provides a sense of pride for the community and the school!”

“We chose Catholic education for our children because of the close knit community that it provides with Christian values.  In this day and age kids are exposed to so much while at school (language, drugs, bullying, promiscuity, etc).  We feel that in a small Catholic environment, there is a closer eye to these social miscues, providing a healthy environment focused on learning where the children can develop lasting friendships.”

“I still remember the days of tears and the sad face as I dropped my son off at preschool. I was the parent who stayed behind to peek in the window, making sure he didn’t get a glimpse of me, just so I knew that he had settled in. Most days he did. He was and is a kid that needs a bit more time with transitions and the close-knit, caring, ‘everyone knows your name’ feeling of our school, supported him AND US to help him become the confident, witty, caring person he is today! One huge component of that confidence is his involvement in Theater at our school. He has conquered one of the biggest fears we all have- he gets up on stage, in front of big audiences, and performs! Now, I’m not hoping for any Broadway or Hollywood star, but I am so proud of him and all of my kids, for being part of a ‘team’, creating something from start to finish, having so much pride in the finished product and a whole bunch of fun along the way. Little do they know they are developing a skill that will last them far beyond their younger years!  Our school provides a  strong education coupled with opportunities to participate in co-curricular activities in a safe and fun way!  It is the perfect combination to nurture a well-rounded confident student!”

“Catholic education gave me a home away from home as a child. Most if not all of what I learned spiritually and academically became the foundation for who I am today. For our children, it has also been a home away from home. They have had the chance to learn and grow surrounded by loving teachers, administrators and members of the clergy. These people have become family to us. Because of the smaller environment my children have had opportunities to lead, try new things, and learn in a way they might not have been able to otherwise. Children that pray together as a school and community relate to each other in a different and wonderful way. The education they are receiving is invaluable.”
