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.

This is truly the greatest and happiest place to be and I couldn’t imagine my life without going here. I have met the greatest people and like many say, there really is no girl like a Basil Girl. Such a happy and empowering environment to be in. Great traditions, good athletics, amazing school spirit, fun environment, motivational learning. It’s a positive and impactful place that I can call home forever
As a shy girl graduating from middle school, I entered St. Basil academy terrified of the future. However, from the first day I felt special. All the teachers learned my name and I began to create special bonds with each of them. Since SBA is so small I also got the chance to know all sixty two girls in my class. I find SBA as my second home because I know every face in the hallway and every teacher motivates me to become a more hardworking student with the ability to overcome obstacles in my way; each of them helping me as much as they can.
