Sophomore: Big Bear High School is what makes Big Bear home to me. There are many amicable students, helpful staff, supportive friends at every corner, and teachers that have changed the way I live my life. There are spectacular coaches, and the cross country team has changed my life forever because of the lessons it has taught me (including teamwork, the importance of competition, pain coping abilities, and the importance of physical health). BBHS makes a positive and accepting environment, with no bullying and plenty of opportunities to challenge yourself and learn more about the world around you. Since it is a small school, it is a family. The Physics teacher, Mr. Bradley, changed the way I thought about love, Physics, and what true health looks like. He has given me inspiration and passion. Even though he is an outstanding teacher, many other teachers at our school are amazing and passionate about what they do also.

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.
