I loved my time at Tolton Catholic. I enjoyed my social life and athletics very much! However, the academics were incomparable to my previous school in Kentucky. Most of my classes did not prepare me for college.

Tolton Catholic is a special school because of it's tight-knit, supportive community. In the past four years, I have grown immensely in my faith thanks to the example of my classmates and teachers. The art department at Tolton is spectacular. Thanks to Mr. Lonnie Tapia, the head of the art department, I have learned so many vital new skills that have made me a better artist and creative person. The athletics at Tolton are also very inclusive and are great programs. I have played softball since freshman year and enjoyed every second. Our team even won the District and Sectional championships last year, and are off to a great start this year. I know that I will always treasure the time I have spent here at Tolton and carry the lessons I have learned with me for the rest of my life.
Fr. Tolton Catholic High School offers a unique high school experience for those in attendance. Its house system allows for community among the students. The small school atmosphere gives students the opportunity to grow closer to one another through faith. It offers challenging classes that prepare students for college, and teachers willing to work with them. The courses are rigorous and the athletics are competitive. It is a great school; one that I have grown quite fond of these past four years. My hope is that Tolton will continue drawing students toward their faith and that everyone can witness the potential I see in Tolton!
