    Our daughter is in her third year at Roanoke Catholic and we could not be happier! As a former public school teacher, I am very impressed with the curriculum, faculty, administration, and support staff. We begin each day with a warm greeting from a faculty member and I feel that my daughter's teacher truly cares about her emotional, academic, and religious eduction. If you are eager to escape the public school world of SOL testing and the unfortunate lack of moral education, I suggest that you give the main office a call for a tour. You won't be disappointed!

    We have been with Roanoke Catholic since our oldest started Kindergarten. She is currently in 4th grade and still loving and excelling. Our youngest is currently in 2nd grade and he also loves school. Both the kids are thriving and are involved in school activities. We love the smaller class sizes and personalized attention. We love the inter-grade involvement - my son loves to have lunch with the high school kids. The 11th grade students partner with the younger kids as prayer buddies and both our children love their buddies. This school is more than a school, it is a family and we have never doubted our commitment to this investment in their growth and development.
    My experience with Roanoke Catholic School has been lukewarm, in any respect. Having come from an innovative college preparatory school in Texas, I was disappointed to find that Roanoke Catholic's focus
    on religion seemed to outshine its focus on college readiness. The campus is below average in terms of size, although it boasts a beautiful cathedral, and I find the lack of mobility counterproductive to preparation for college life. The diversity of clubs is vey lacking. The administration is inefficient when it comes to circulating information. The school does not have a track or football field of it's own. The most enjoyable factor of my stay has been the meals served, which are above average for school food. I recommend joining Roanoke Catholic as early as possible to get the best experience, since it's harder to get assimilated in later grades.
