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.

Alum: It was very welcoming and felt like home. The academic programs could have been better. Like there should be more electives for science majors instead of having so many cooking and agriculture classes. Also some of the teachers were very unprofessional and should not of had their job for the way they treated students. The food was also very poor, but it was nice to see that in the last year they have been trying to approve the lunches. Overall, it was a very good school and i do believe that i got a lot out of my six years.
