    Wonderful experience so far. The additional tech courses are unique to high school experience to prepare for college and the real world . The disciple taught here builds amazing young men that will Only continue to grow in college . The small community brings the young boys close and builds life long friendships and experiences very different from a large setting . While providing a rigorous academic schedule, it competes with more expensive school in more affluent areas. Diversity seems to be improving which brings a more realistic worldly experience for the boys .

    Our son (a freshman) attends Bosco and he absolutely loves it! He is challenged academically as well as charitable donations that he gives of his time. The teachers and staff have been great at informing us of our son's progress and accomplishments as well as upcoming events/activities. Other Bosco families have been extremely helpful in making us feel welcomed and comfortable.
    At my time at Bosco Tech, I enjoyed everything about it. The technology was always up to date, using Apple desktops, Wacom Tablets, Photoshop and more. The classes for architecture, design, and computer science were well taught and prepared students for college work. Teachers are always concerned about students and the educational curriculum prepares students for college experience.
