LC has been an exciting and rewarding experience for us. All three of my children transferred to Lowell Catholic when they opened an elementary division three years ago. Now, two of my children are in the high school, while my youngest remains in the elementary school. All three are happy, enthusiastic, challenged academically, and given plenty of opportunities for enrichment and socialization. They offer AP, honors, and college prep courses. My kids play sports (LC boasts lots of CCL titles) and participate in clubs and activities like mock trial, science club, and NHS. This year, LC added a fifth building to its growing campus. This has been exciting for them, as they have some classes there and have lunch in the building’s new cafeteria.

Three of my children attend Lowell Catholic. They are different students and all of their needs are met. They are held accountable and are excelling academically and socially. The teachers, guidance department and administration have all taken interest in my children's school success and the small class sizes allow for personalized attention.
The Catholic setting allows for spiritual growth as well. The school has class retreats providing opportunities for students to grow together in their faith.
Lowell Catholic High School provides an environment in which students can try new things including sports and theater without ever having done so in lower grades. I highly recommend Lowell Catholic.
This school has been my home for the past 3 years, and I am so sad that it is my last year. The academics have pushed me to places where I never imagined I would go, and I've learned so much. The teachers love their jobs, are enthusiastic with children, and want to have a positive impact on their students. The student culture is fantastic, and everyone really cares about each other, regardless of class (some of my closest friends are underclassmen, and as a sophomore, I had friends that were seniors). Everyone attends school events, like walk-a-thon, pep rally, sports events, drama productions, spirit week, homecoming, and so on. The only problem I've had was with the lack of funding towards the drama program, as we do not have a legitimate auditorium. Also, class sizes are smaller so it's hard to take some electives senior year because there may not be enough interest. However, Virtual High School online classes are offered.
