Saint Vincent Academy creates women. This school isn’t based solemnly on academics but on morals and principles. It builds a foundation for character to form. With limited distractions from males and clothes, Saint Vincent makes you focus on what’s really important, YOU and the relationships you make when you leave. Because of Saint Vincent I have two of my bestfriends that I wouldn’t trade for the world. Saint Vincent has made us smart, we think twice, we know what we deserve and we don’t settle for anything less.. but most importantly it gave us discipline, patience and knowledge. Knowing is key. And I know for sure that if I have a daughter she WILL attend Saint Vincent because they don’t make regular girls, they make EXTRAORDINARY women.

If you are a person who is a slacker. Don't come here. You'd be better off at another school. Saint Vincent is for young women who want to excel academically and personally. This school also helps you to become a responsible, independent women that you need to be in order to thrive after high school. The curriculum is very rigorous but after a while, you get accustomed to it. If you're a slacker and want to improve, you definitely should come here if you want to push yourself. I think the best thing about the school is the environment that they create for students. As freshman, you are taught that your peers are your sisters and this lesson carries out for the next 4 years with your classmates. I feel like i can talk to anyone in my class.Your sisters are there for you whenever you need them.Personally I would say I like the students and faculty more than the education. It’s very competitive and sometimes i get detention for the tiniest things but other than that, its a good school.
During the past 4 years of attending Saint Vincent Academy I have learned more about myself than I have anytime before then. Considering I am only 17 years old, SVA has become a place where I've grown and strived and succeeded more than I ever thought was possible for me. The environment of the school from the teachers to the students to the education and atmosphere all around has made such a huge impact on my life and has helped me get through high school with such a positive experience. SVA has become my home away from home and my teachers and classmates have become my family.
