    Most people know about DeMatha because of its sports programs. In addition to its great sports programs, DeMatha also has a good academic curriculum and excellent counselors that can you help you through almost any hardship you may experience. Despite this, no school is perfect and DeMatha has its own share of problems. Compared to other private schools in the area, the facilities seem somewhat lacking. Also, the amount of money parents shell out for their kids to attend the school should cover the costs of many other separate things you are forced to pay for. Overall, DeMatha is a good school for people who want to attend a good athletics and academic school.

    Excellent experience! Loved the sense of community and brotherhood. Fantastic Teachers and Staff. As a student, everyone can find their niche. Whether it's being apart of our nationally recognized athletic program or a member of one of the superb music ensembles.
    I have enjoyed all 4 years that I have spent at DeMatha. There is a strong sense of community and brotherhood among the students, alum and faculty. Academics are highly valued and I feel very prepared for college. There are an abundance of clubs and athletics to choose from. I will graduate as a Gentleman and a Scholar!
