Shrine Catholic High School Reviews

We've had a very good experience at Shrine High School with our two students. The college counseling, college prep curriculum, opportunities to participate in sports, & opportunities for leadership are worth the tuition price. The Math & English departments are strong. History is too. Science and the languages have room for improvement partially because of teacher-turnover. My kids were well-prepared for college. The small size has been good for my kids overall; sure I wish it was a bit bigger but I sense it is growing. Socially it is hard to initially fit in when some families have been together since pre-school but I have found the community welcoming overall. My kids had no problem finding friends. The Mothers Club and Dads Club were great ways to get involved & meet other parents. Its worth mentioning that you don't have to belong to the Shrine parish to receive the tuition discount as long as you are active at your own Catholic parish. It's not just a parish school.

Shrine High School is like a community and family that shaped the person I am today. The school teaches the importance of acceptance and care for others, and it is displayed through the students and staff. This may only be my experience since I've been here since preschool, but students who came only last year can agree with me.
The best way to experience Shrine is to become fully immersed in the community. As such, you'll notice a community that will do what it takes for you to feel supported and successful.
As with any smaller community, there is the good with the bad. Everyone will know you; that might mean they know your business. I have experienced Shrine rallying around a family whose parent might be ill or around a student who is struggling. Intrusive a small community may seem at times, the intention and support offered can be life changing.
Shrine is the best small school with enormous opportunities based on their size. Simply look at the scholarships offered to the graduating seniors as proof that with the work put in, the opportunity to volunteer, and the valuable mentoring from staff as proof.
