St. Basil Academy Reviews

I had an amazing four year experience at Basil’s! I honestly would not change anything, I was pleased with the small class room sizes and the one to one attention that I received. I feel that the teachers and faculty prepared me for college and shaped me into the person that I am today .
If I had to change anything on a personal level would be the fact that I didn’t participate in more extra curricular activities over the years . I was involved with the soccer team but afraid to take on more in fear that my grades would suffer .
Over all I would definitely recommend Saint Basil’s to any young girl looking for a college Prepatory education.

Saint Basil Academy is a small, but amazing school. Within Saint basil, there are only about 200 students, but this is what makes all of the students so close. There is no other school where you will feel more at home. Everyone who attends this welcoming and brilliant school, automatically feels a sense of family. Not only is each grade close; the entire school gets along great and no one will ever be left out.
Aside from the heart- warming family feeling, Saint Basil Academy has an excellent academic program. The teachers are always working their hardest to make sure their students are understanding all the material in order to do well. Saint Basil offers honors and AP classes to push all it's students to do their best everyday. I have had the best four years at Saint Basil Academy and would not wanna call any other place my second home.
Having attended Saint Basil Academy for 3 years now, I can truly say that I have had the best high school experience. The academics are rigorous and foster an atmosphere of a college. Teachers are very supportive and are accessible for tutoring and questions. Most importantly, the girls at Saint Basil's are united and develop bonds with sisters that will for many years after graduation. Sisterhood is an integral part of the school community.
