    Knoxville Catholic provides students with a quality education that exceeded my expectations with passionate instructors, meaningful relationships and spiritual guidance. It allowed me to find my voice, grow as a student and recognize my individual strengths and talents.

    I was first drawn to KCHS by its academic rigor and reputation for excellence. I wanted a school that would challenge me to think for myself, learn through struggle, recognize strengths and areas to grow intellectually and spiritually. Coming from the public school made me nervous about my own ability to succeed, but KCHS provided me with one-on-one academic counseling, spiritual guidance and classes that are tailored to my specific needs. It has prepared me for my future and the provided me with the tools that I need to be successful in college. I hope to begin my duel enrollment classes this next fall while still at KCHS so that I continue to have the support I have come accustomed to.

    Knoxville Catholic High School is generally a wonderful choice to send your child to regarding academics. The courses are rigorous yet enjoyable. I'd like to believe that this school elevates the level of learning for their students in order to prepare them for college compared to other schools. The teachers are very easy to form a relationship with; the overall faculty are very accommodating. However, tuition and additional fees can be quite pricy, but you cannot forget that it is a private school. During this pandemic, this school is doing a wonderful job of abiding by guidelines and keeping kids safe.
    When we moved to Knoxville from the Chicago area specifically for our daughter to attend KCHS, we knew it was a good school. What we didn’t know was HOW good. Teachers who care, excellent college prep, and opportunities for every student to excel using his or her unique gifts are all important. But by far the best part of our experience is with our daughter’s guidance counselor, and the whole guidance department.

    Their whole job is to make sure each student creates the life where they will be most happy and successful. They start with helping in course selection so each student is placed in the right level and courses for their interests and graduation requirements. They focus on what comes after high school and in helping students and their families prepare for college. Her guidance counselor knows my daughter and me and everything about her interests and goals. I wish I had such a wonderful experience and expert guidance when I was in high school. They are amazing!!
