Senior: Through my many years at Maret, I have learned just how fantastic of a school it is. The teachers are incredibly accessible which makes it a fun and inviting academic environment. The academics are very, very rigorous. And as much as us Maret students like to complain about our workload, it's been worth it from my experience. Not only have I learned important content, but I have learned how to think, how to approach problems, and how to live life with an open and accepting mind. The extracurriculars, arts, and sports are amazing as well and foster a unique sense of community. As corny as it sounds, the community at Maret welcomes diversity and strives for inclusion. The thing I love most about Maret though is the people. I've met by best friends at Maret and have been educated by some of the smartest and kindest teachers. Maret has prepared me so incredibly well for college and beyond and I am so thankful for my experience at the school.

Alum: I had a pretty good experience. There were a few bad teachers, which is typical of any school, but for the most part, they were all very encouraging.

Parent: Our family LOVES CCS! Our two boys went through CCS and are much better young men and students as a result. The overall environment at the Catholic School is exceptional. Academically, the students are encouraged, supported, and pushed to do their very best in the classroom. The teachers do an amazing job of reaching each student individually which translates into a trusting, caring, and successful school experience for the student, the parent(s), and also the teacher. In and out of the classroom the teachers and staff also do an extraordinary job of instilling discipline, self-respect and respect for others, thoughtfulness, and a sense of community and personal responsibility. Our boys continue to excel each and every year both as students and as young men in our community and I believe those valuable traits are a direct result of the foundation, mentorship, and guidance that they received as students at the Charlottesville Catholic School.
