Charlottesville Catholic School
- Private School
- Charlottesville, VA
- PK, K-8
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.

Alum: St. Marys Area is a good place overall. The small town doesn't offer a lot to do but the surrounding area is beautiful and it's quite possible to have a good time if you explore. The school itself has a subpar facility. There are a few great teachers at SMAHS but you can tell most of them don't care about the individual students and normally care most about their paycheck. Sports talk if you're an athlete you may be favored by some teachers. If you take the initiative to get the most out of your education and developing into a bright young adult you will no doubt succeed because the school does provide the needs of the student if sought out. The school does have a mild racist and drinking problem, it may have to do with 99% of the school and town being white and not exposed to many other cultures. The drinking issue is really county-wide nobody bats an eyelash at 15 or 16-year-olds drinking nearly every weekend. But Friendly place overall. Beautiful Campus compared to other schools.
