I have loved my experience at McAuley! Being a senior, I’ve really gotten to take advantage of all the resources that McAuley has to offer. Teachers are here for you and want you to succeed. My classes have truly prepared me for college and I am confident that I have learned everything I need to succeed, plus some time management skills. We have the best fan section around and always get dressed up in some sort of theme for the sporting events. If you aren’t interested in sports, we have tons of clubs that you can participate in. There is truly a spot for anyone at McAuley!

I enjoyed my high school experience at Mother McAuley. They had an extracurricular activity/class that suited many different interests. One class that I had that I really enjoyed was my athletic training class my senior year. In that class we learned about the different injuries that can affect the body, it was pretty much like a mini anatomy/physical therapy/nursing course. That class solidified my interest in healthcare and I am glad that i went to Mcauley. McAuley really prepared me academically and socially for college. If i had went to a different school i do not think I would have been prepared for the academic rigor of college.
I really enjoyed my time at McAuley. I felt my teachers wanted me to succeed and cared about my future. I realize students of color / nonwhite found the environment to not be as welcoming as it was for me (white) which is so saddening. I did not see any forms of racism toward my classmates, but does not mean it was there. It would be nice to have a more diverse faculty and staff, I think it would offer a better perspective. Overall, I enjoyed the sisterhood, the deepening of my faith, my academic improvement, and the overall experience here.
