Senior: 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.

Parent: I have a gifted daughter who struggles with ADHD and Anxiety disorders. We struggled to find the right school for her from about 3rd grade (when homework because a nightmare) until 8th grade when we found Commonwealth Academy. What a Blessing! The school completely changed my daughter around. Now she wanted to go to school. She wanted to learn. She learning to organize herself. She became self-confidence once more and went off to college with that self-confidence and never looked back. I can't say enough good things about C/A.
