Christian Brothers Academy has offered me an incredible opportunity in life that I would not have gotten anywhere else. The Brothers, teachers, and administrators all guided me on a path to a professional field, that I would've never dreamed of having not gone to CBA. The lessons taught here: respect, brotherhood, and faith, prepared me as much for life as my college education. The friendships built here, the relationships that the boys have with one another, and the academic and extracurricular program have no rival anywhere. The current administration and staff continue to build on CBA's 160-year legacy by brining in top teaching talent, and dedicated administrators who support the mission and tradition of CBA. If you want your son to be put on a path to excel, in an environment that fosters respect for others, faith-based values, and seriousness for academics, there is no better choice than CBA.

CBA is an excellent school. They strive to promote an atmosphere of excellence and are always looking to enhance the curriculum, the facilities, and programs offered at the school. CBA's athletic programs are top notch and are very competitive. In terms of college preparation, most CBA graduates go on to college and are well prepared academically as well as socially. If you are looking for an alternative school for your son, than this is the school for you.
My experience at CBA was beneficial in every way possible. From the dedicated teachers and staff, to the camaraderie felt throughout the school, to the lifelong friends, and everything in-between, CBA prepared me for college and for life. I did not struggle once I got to college like many of my peers did; in fact I felt confident and comfortable in my classes which solidified to me that my choice to go to CBA was a great decision. Aside from college, CBA instilled in me leadership skills and morals that I will take with me for the rest of my life. I credit CBA to getting me to where I am today and I am forever grateful for my experience there.
