Excellent school in every aspect. Academically my son was well prepared for college. He received many huge scholarships to wonderful colleges and has transitioned easily. He was involved in many sports and activities and enjoyed his four years there immensely. The brotherhood is something that can not be found at any other school. For those concerned with lack of interaction with female students, my son had exchange classes at Ursuline and Padua both junior and senior year. He attended many sporting events, shows, dances and proms and had many female friends at these schools that he is still friends with now. We loved Salesianum...best choice!

Salesianum is known as a high class catholic school that teaches young boys to turn into young Salesian gentleman. These boys at this school are just smart enough to follow what they're told in school, just to turn and do and be the opposite once the teacher or father beretta turn their backs. Sallies will always support their own just as they did during the whole molestation scandal. Bullying, harassment, and racism are all very strong and serious acts the this school does not address properly. Sallies staff and faculty do not care for student safety in the fact the bullying leads to many suicides every year.
Great education and qualified teaching and staff, most with over 20+ years of teaching experience. Phasing program puts students in a class that is the right pace for them, and those that are need some extra help have access to Brisson Center which works alongside students and parents to ensure assignments are completed and helps with test extensions and tutoring. Amazing environment, fraternity type feel and strong sense of community experienced through daily prayers, after school activities and events, masses, active alumni. Competitive sports program with over 150 state titles. Parts of the school are older, but quality science wing and athletic facilities.
