We have a son and daughter at Cheverus. Both love it there and are actively engaged in academics, sports, and co-currivular activites. The school is safe, faculty are very supportive of students, and the administration is superb. Sports are a big part of the Cheverus experience, with many teams winning state championships. There is something for everyone at Cheverus!

I attended cheverus for four years in order to prepare for college and to receive the best education possible for me. Although the price is steep, the payoff is excellent, as I got into more schools and received more money than I would have had I attended a different high school in my opinion. The academics are excellent, with many different course offerings. Most teachers are great. The sense of community is what really makes Cheverus stand out to me though. Alumni involvement, parent involvement, and student involvement in clubs and activities and academics at Cheverus is exemplary, and something I will never forget.
Cheverus provides a nurturing and welcoming learning community for a diverse student population from all around Maine. It is hard to imagine a faculty that is more talented, dedicated and mission-driven than the Cheverus faculty - who care deeply about the personal development and formation of each and every student. The focus upon social justice and responding to the needs of others cultivates a sense of responsibility and care and concern for one's neighbors in all to the students. Cheverus provides students with valuable leadership opportunities that will help students succeed in college and in life.
