    This school is PHENOMENAL! Sion is an interfaith Catholic school which means that all religions and cultures are warmly welcomed into the Sion community, which is amazing! Last year our 5yr old son learned Russian, French and Mandarin and our 3 yr old daughter learned French and Mandarin. They also had the opportunity to learn chess, take karate, and yoga. I also love that the school has a dedicated STEAM room for the PreK-8th grade and that students are learning "how" to think, versus "what" to think. Last year my son also had the opportunity to skype with Sion students at Sion schools in Costa Rica, Australia, and France! The food is healthy, delicious and prepared by a local chef who uses organic ingredients that are locally sourced. We also love the character development education our kids receiving, they're learning how to support their peer's educational experience in a positive way thru servant leadership. We feel lucky to have found Sion!

    This school is incredible. Coming from a co-ed public school to an all girls Catholic high school where I didn't know anyone was terrifying as a freshman, but after the first two weeks I knew it was where I belonged. Every single person there is kind, no matter your grade, and no one is judged or bullied. I learn about the world outside of my own bubble, whether it's through my class about non-Catholic faiths, AP World History and American History and Government, or even through Social Awareness club. Academics are rigorous but I have never once felt overwhelmed because the faculty is passionate about their student's success and the counseling staff makes sure you choose classes that are a fit for you. Student are pushed to think about college and their resumes all four years, and it's the reason that I've been accepted into so many incredible schools outside of the Midwest. I love Sion and I love the student body. Vive Sion!
    Sion is great! The teachers are friendly and incredibly helpful and the students are eager to learn. Academics are a priority, but sports and arts do not fall short at our high school. Classes are rigorous to prepare students for college, but despite the tough curriculum the teachers are more than ready to assist in order to help every student succeed.
