Roanoke Catholic is a school that teaches students belong the classroom and prepares them for either college. In the past years, 100 percent of Catholic seniors have attended college and this year the seniors have received over 2.5 million in scholarships. I started Roanoke Catholic two years ago and it was a big change coming from public school. In public schools you could slide by without doing your homework, but at Roanoke Catholic all work is required and graded as a test grade. Roanoke Catholic does not let you fall through the cracks. I also must say the food is outstanding!!
One thing I really did not like were the uniforms. In public school you basically wore what you want, but not in private school. My first year the gentlemen had to wear a shirt and tie during the winter and in the summer a polo shirt with the school’s logo and khaki pants or shorts. This year they changed the dress code to where gentlemen could wear the polo shirt and khaki pants all year around.

I took challenging courses in high school taught by very good teachers who have a deep and broad knowledge in their subjects and also are passionate about those subjects. The teachers were mostly helpful when I got stuck on something. My school is mainly white and Catholic but is diverse enough that I could build my friendship from a person of the same race as me to best friends who are Asian, white, black, Hispanic, or mix of various religious backgrounds. The school’s administration is certainly not the coolest group of people, and many students, because of the administration, suffer from being given penalties. However, because of this situation, the bond among the student body is very strong. At the end of the day, everyone is proud of being a Celtic, and the strength of the school spirit will not lose to that of any school.
RCS is a close-knit, caring community. Students are provided the tools and resources that they need to prepare for success in college. My experience with the school has been nothing short of fantastic.
