Saint Bede Academy Reviews
As an alum, I recently returned for a visit. The new Perino Science Center is state of the art, and the faculty impressive. St. Bede has always been excellent academically, but now with the new science facilities, it can't be beat. Alumni continue to support the Academy, and while the cost is truly quite low for an education of this level, there are lots of scholarships available to make St Bede Academy even more affordable. Go Bruins!
I loved the overall atmosphere of Saint Bede. There are many traditions that have been passed through generations of students. Everyone at the Academy is extremely kind, helpful, and overall understanding. All teachers want you to excel throughout high school and college!
Because of Saint Bede and the activities they offer, I have grown to be confident and independent. There are so many opportunities to get involved and find activities that interest you. The teachers always put their students as their top priority. The courses can be challenging yet teachers are always open to helping students. The school is rich in school spirit and it offers a family sentiment.
