St. Charles Preparatory School Reviews

St. Charles - a very odd school. The school is difficult but prepares you. Let's take a look at this from a few angles:
Academically, this school will get you into college and you will do very well at it. Mr. Stahlman will find the right college for you better than anyone else in the state. Your essay-writing skills will be top-notch. Yes, the two years of Latin is not enjoyable, but it teaches college-level discipline.
Spiritually, this school is mediocre. The Campus Ministry program is below average, but they are working on it. There are some really great men there.
Socially, I can't say you'll meet your best friends there, but there is a brotherhood. I didn't know what that really meant until I left. We all stick up for each other - no matter how dumb he is.
The admin, Chick-Fil-A, and most (not all) of the teachers are the best. The admin is friendly and there to help. The teachers know their stuff, just don't goof off.

Come for the Books, Stay for the Brotherhood. The teachers are dedicated and the students are motivated the arts and music is not as strong as it could be. The connections you make last you a life time. I am truly blessed for the opportunities this school and school commitment has given me. At first I didn’t want to be at St.Charles but now I can not thank my parents more for choosing to send me to the distinctive leader in catholic education. This school has changed my life forever and if you are a perspective student I I hope that it will one day change yours. If you are a perspective parent this is the greatest gift you could ever give your child. Giving him brothers for life and an education paralleled by no other. College is a joke compared to the academics you will experience at this school.
St. Charles is an excellent school. There are many great schools out there, but no-one does more to maximize a student’s potential. It gives you the tools to succeed in life after high school. I can’t express how fortunate and blessed I was to go there. Best decision of my life!
