I enjoyed my time at Althoff Catholic. The class sizes are small enough to allow any needed one-on-one time with the teachers. I feel that I received a well rounded education that prepared me for college and my future. There are many activities, clubs, and sports to choose from to add to the experience.
Althoff is a very good school especially if you’re an athlete. Althoff is a school of athletes, they produce many scholarships in all sports across the board.
I enjoy the family like atmosphere that the faculty and students bring to Althoff. At Althoff Catholic, the teachers are not only concerned about if you succeeding in their classrooms, but they also care about what kind of person you are and how you are doing. If you have a bad day, the teachers and faculty there are the first ones to ask what’s wrong and what they can do to help. Althoff is more than just a school, it is a place where students grow intellectually, spiritually, and morally.

I transferred to Althoff early in my sophomore year. I felt immediately welcomed by the teachers and students.

The course selections and overall academics far exceeded Mater Dei in Breese, IL
Althoff Catholic has been my home for the past four years and it has been quite a fun ride. One of the big things at Althoff is being one big family, and it really has felt like a big family. Everything that happens at Althoff has support and it really feels great. I will be very sad to leave, but I am so excited to start my new adventure as a college student. Go Crusaders!!
As a senior at Althoff, I can easily say I would not trade my experience here for anything. I feel thoroughly prepared for the road ahead of me, and if a question arises I know I have an amazing support system to help me.
I had a great experience at Althoff. I learned a lot and made life long friends. I feel like I got a very good education. My faith is important to me so I’m happy I got to go to Catholic schools. I loved my teachers.
Althoff Catholic High School was an interesting experience for me. I was given the choice between attending there, and attending O'Fallon Township High School. I believe I made the right choice. While I didn't like some decisions that were by the administration during my four years there, overall the experience was a good one. My friends and the excellent guidance counselors really made my time at Althoff Catholic High School worthwhile.
The teachers are very easily approachable, will help whenever asked, and very good overall. However, the actions taken by the higher administration are detrimental to the peace of mind of students.
I loved Althoff Catholic's family atmosphere and support from all of the faculty and classmates. We were all competitive with each other, wanting to see everyone gain success in their extra curricular activities. All the students knew the staff and all the staff knew every single student by name. The faculty were all trusted adult figures in our life and I loved seeing everyone at school everyday. They made school enjoyable and fun to be there.
The school work was easy. There was numerous teachers I absolutely loved. There was a few teachers I could not stomach. I thought many of the students were far too into gossip and were rather stuck up. I made very few friends and ended up transferring back to public school. Many people have had a better experience at this school than me, at least. As long as you fit in with everyone else, I guess you'll be okay
Althoff has been such a blessing in my life. Despite only coming in half way through high school, I’ve not only felt at home, but I have been challenged in a way that has made me a better student and a better person.
I have gone to Althoff for the past 3.5 years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed my time there. The teachers and faculty are absolutely amazing. They will put in whatever time is necessary, whether you need help before or after school. The students are also amazing. We are truly like a family.
This is not a family oriented institution! Operates much like the “Good Ol boy” club. Seams all their newly constructed developments I.e. Football field rules their popmpous mentalities. Serious lack of compassion torwards all walks of life! After, spending thousands of dollars at this school I am thoroughly disappointed! Money over compassion seams to be their moto. Ecspecially, in the offices. These are our children you are suppose to be leading in a POSITIVE manner. Not in a credit union manner! Our children ARE NOT DOLLAR SIGNS!
Althoff truly is a family. I've made the best friends here I know will last a lifetime. The sporting events, homecoming week, and everything in between has allowed me to make many memories I will never forget.
A special shout-out to June Mcgeean and family who blessed me with an amazing opportunity to be a part of yet another great family, the Althoff Catholic High School family. It's been a very long, confusing, learning, growing, and progressive experience. I have shared many great times as well as not so great times with my brothers/ family here at Althoff for the last 4 years. Through it all, I wouldn't trade one minute of it. These are memories and lessons that I will cherish and utilize for the rest of my life. And even though it saddens me that we are all venturing in different directions , I wish everyone great success and I want you to know that I will miss every one of you. I have shared special moments with each of you. To the teachers, coaches, and my team of brothers you all have contributed great meaning and lasting moments that are worth preserving. I have much love in my heart for my Althoff Catholic Family.
Althoff Catholic High School was one of the best decisions I made. The teachers have been pushing me out of my comfort zone for the past couple years. Not only can I go to them for academic help but also personal things. I'm not just a number in their class. They know me by name, who I am, my family, and some even my life story and background. My classes require critical thinking, and I have been able to grow in subjects I was once not the best in. One of my favorite parts about Althoff is the family relationship we have with each other. When I walk in the hallways, I know about 75% of the students walking through there. We are all there for each other whether it's personal, growth, sports,or faith etc. I would like to see Althoff grow in size and our new stadium, we are trying to raise money for, being built soon. I believe an athletic complex will be essential in our growth and size.

This is a great school. The teachers are willing to go the extra mile if you need help with lessons or just to talk. The entire staff is helpful. Students are willing to work together to help with in the community and the parents are always their to help with fundraisers and helping to keep the school going. I would recommend this school.
Student-run clubs tend to dissolve by the end of the school year, although ALL of the clubs have participation and many people passionate about the subject.
I transferred from a nationally ranked high school (Niche rated A+). This high school allows me to stand out in a smaller crowd, although it does not quite offer the opportunities of a larger institution.
