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.

I absolutely love Saint Basil Academy! This school has become my second home, where I feel comfortable being myself, and can express myself easily and without fear of judgement. It's small class sizes and Ukrainian background fit my needs precisely.
This is a good school, but buyer beware. You can get the same education at a suburban public school for free or a Philadelphia Catholic school for half the price. Basil's will offer you a ton of money to offset freshman year tuition, making it cheaper than a Catholic school, but for Sophomore, Junior and Senior year be prepared to pay full price. You will definitely end up paying significantly more for 4 years at SBA vs an Archdiocesan school, and there is nothing extra offered for the additional cost. Colleges view the SBA student the same as an AOP student when considering admission.
