Creative Technologies Academy
- Public School
- Cedar Springs, MI
Alum: Creative Technologies Academy is a small charter school in Cedar Springs.
It may lack some sport teams, great lunches, a gym and advanced classes, but the teachers there truly care for students. They stay in and after school, take one on one time, and teach to the needs of each student there.
Also, in the school statement they point out they are to teach the students to make a different and leave a legacy. They hold firm on that belief by holding you to a standard, training you for the future and treating you as if you were in a work place.
Another great aspect is it is like a family. For example, when I was a freshman in high school and it was my first year at the school, my house burned down. The school came along side me from the varsity basketball team I was, high school teachers, NHS, and the school as a whole. They did a donation drive, held a euchre tourney and so much more for me and my family.
It may not be the greatest school but it is the most genuine.

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.
