With hard work and dedication, the education at Lexington Catholic can be amazing and a major advantage when applying to college. The Exemplar Scholars Program also allows you to gain an extra advantage when applying for college, and it's been one of the best decisions I've ever made to participate. The teachers, especially those who teach AP courses, know the material really well and teach for you to do well on the AP exam and remember the material in future classes. Lexington Catholic does an amazing job with preparing you for college, and there are plenty of opportunities to connect with people who have common interests. While there are some issues regarding administration and the overall culture of the school, I wouldn't trade my education at Lexington Catholic for anything!

I was a good student in 1-8 but moved several times affecting my connections and friends in high school. A bit intimidated by the scholars with high ACT scores, clubs and sports, I quickly fell behind the other students. Consequently, I never finished college but have had a long and successful career and now appreciate the character of teachers, students and even our infamous Principal Father Kampsen! I have life-long friends from LCH and look forward to our 50th reunion this fall.
Have you ever heard about free tutoring program at a private school? At least I haven’t until I came to Lexington Catholic High School this year. I was worried about my grades and how to prepare for taking the finals for the first time. I knew I wasn’t ready with the materials by just listening in the class, so I went to High Marks and got some help. The teachers tried their best to make us learn and get prepare for the exams. Also, they had multiple study sessions for some hard subjects such as Biology. I think Lexington Catholic High School is great in many ways, but especially with academics.
