Parent: FCCS is an academically rigorous environment that sets high standards for each student. It instills the awareness of virtues and uses this framework to build character. The teachers are dedicated and hard-working. The school building and location are lacking and it's shame that this excellent classical school doesn't have something better. The outdoor playground is like a prison yard and being in an industrial business park makes you wonder who is working in and around very close proximity to your cildren? Fortunately the academics and teachers make up for the logistical shortcomings. Finally, if you are not up for an environment that puts academics first, and you want sports or after school activities, this is not the school for you. Here, As a parent, you'll also recognize your young children are capable of so much more. This school is serious about education and somehow instills in children a genuine hunger for learning.

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.
