Attending Mother McAuley was the best decision I made in high school. I thrived in this environment because the school community strengthens young women’s intelligence, confidence, and kindness. Go Mighty Macs!

I believe that being at Mother McAuley for two full years has already inspired me for the near future, careers, and my life. This school is truly amazing, but we are restricted with our bus service/transportation (I have to walk over to Brother Rice everyday in all weather conditions), and freedom (we don’t have many late start schedules and mental breaks). The tuition increases every year, and it’s a sacrifice for many families like mine, but Mother McAuley surely gives us a quality education! 100% of senior graduates have successfully chosen colleges and universities across the nation, so kudos to that!
I am so glad that I choose McAuley! I am challenged academically but am still able to do things outside of school. Our fan section is unbelievable and wether you know the girl next to you or not your screaming the chants at the games. McAuley’s sports are also amazing having gone to state numerous times. The theatre and music is incredible as well. It is so worth it to go here. It being all girls does not make it clique-y or catty but brings us all together. Theres a place for everyone at McAuley.
