Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School Reviews

I went to Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School for all four years of high school and enjoyed every minute of it. I was heavily involved in many activities on campus and there really were opportunities available for all interests. I participated in sports, honor societies, clubs, campus ministry and retreat team, and being an ambassador for the school. I am currently a freshman at Virginia Tech and can say without a doubt that Bishop Sullivan prepared me very well for being a college student. Although I may not have enjoyed the course load or high expectations of teachers, I realize now that they were just preparing me for college life and I am so thankful. Bishop Sullivan offers many opportunities for your child to flourish in faith, fellowship, academics, and other activities. The teachers are always willing to lend a helping hand and genuinely care about your child's well-being. I am so blessed to have gone to Bishop Sullivan and your children will be too!

Bishop Sullivan ensures that each student is challenged academically, but offers guidance to promote success for their students. Given the intimate size of this school (each class has less than 200 students), the teachers foster supportive relationships with each of their students, and are always available to assist their pupils. There are many opportunities for a students, both in academics and athletics. A majority of the student population is a member of a varsity sports team, and/ or participates in multiple clubs, art activities, or honor societies.
Bishop Sullivan Catholic High School was a great place to spend my last four years. Most of the teachers are very interested in making sure that the students are engaged in the learning material and they want to see their students succeed. The SAGE Dining is delicious, freshly made food for breakfast, lunch, and a snack after classes for the students. It is pretty pricy, but it is worth every penny if you can afford it. Being a smaller school, I have been surprised by the number of extracurricular activities available, but it does get to be difficult when every club wants their meeting to be in a certain room on a bi-weekly/monthly basis, but another club may be taking up that space. The school simply is not big enough for such a growing extracurricular interest.
