They community is great and everyone supports eachother! The food is extraordinary which helps. The competition is not for everyone, but it prepares us well for college. The classes are unique and fun and there are lots of opportunities to get involved in the community! The school spirit is exceptional and when everyone gets together it is always a fun time.

My experience at Archbishop Mitty was definitely eye opening. Being around peers that come from a very privileged background taught me that the only way I will make a difference in this world is through hard work. I found myself questioning my worth a lot when comparing myself to my peers whose parents could pay the school enough to want their student. While money can buy many things, it doesn’t define your character one bit. To attend Mitty can be humbling when around others who work hard no matter what their background is. Additionally, there is something for everyone at Mitty (clubs, sports, etc) and joining these extra curricular activities is a perfect way to make friends who value the same interests as you.
I will forever be grateful for the time I spent at Mitty. Not only did I receive a great education supported by teachers who genuinely care about each of their students' successes, but I also was able to participate in extracurricular activities that I was interested in. Whether you're interested in sports, theater, music, debate, robotics, the list goes on, you will be in some of the best company. The school strives to be the best at everything it does and everyone celebrates each other's successes. It is a great place to learn and great community to be a part of.
