    I really am blessed to be given the opportunity to attend St Anselm's Abbey School. The school feels like a second home to me. I enrolled in 9th grade and i was able to feel the warm welcome from the teachers, staff, and students. The teachers are great and I have enjoyed most of my classes. In those I have encountered difficulties, I have been able to work with my mom and teachers to help me surmount the challenges. I sincerely feel that the teachers care. I have been able to play sports, and received support and encouragement to complete my academic work. I feel that St Anselm's has helped me grow even in my character. During this time of confinement due to Covid-19, my teachers have provided enough materials for the students to learn. The distance learning has been much easier than I had anticipated, and I feel like I am working even harder. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to rate my school which provides me a stellar education. I appreciate your consideration.

    I thrived at an Ivy League school in my undergraduate years but nothing could compare to the education I was lucky to receive at St. Anselm's. In middle school, I was much more keen on going some place like Georgetown Prep or Gonzaga but thankfully my mom knew better. She knew that a small close-knit community, personal attention within a rigorous curriculum, and an opportunity to get meaningful time in a couple varsity sports would do wonders for me. She was right. Decades have passed since I graduated from "The Abbey" and I have been able to work and travel around the world both in the private sector and in government. Wherever I have worked or traveled, I have carried my St. Anselm's education with me. It is the essential foundation that has allowed me flexibility to seize so many different opportunities and understand the complex problems of a changing world.
    St. Anselm's is life changing for the young men fortunate enough to be accepted. The academics are outstanding, and combined with moral guidance, its graduates are prepared to make major contributions to society. The classes are challenging but the commitment is worth all their efforts. At St. Anselm's, boys become men of distinction.
