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!

St. Charles is probably one of the strongest schools throughout Ohio. The strength in math and science areas is immense, and there are so many great, helpful, caring teachers ready to prepare one for college. The academic rigor is so intense that college seems much easier. The school fosters a sense of brotherhood among the students and faculty the remains forever and encourages helping other struggling students. Although the tuition may be high, it is worth every penny to go through the stress and obstacle that is St. Charles because college will be so much more easy.
St. Charles is honestly a very special school. It is definitely the distinctive leader in the Catholic Education and will more than prepare you college; you will become a man.

Most of the teachers are way too overqualified to be teaching high school but love the fun involved in teaching a bunch of teenage goofballs. Minus the one or two bad or mean teachers here and there, you will have mostly teachers who tend who be on the senior side of the age spectrum and are very knowledgeable of the material they teach.

The school has lots of its culture invested in the brotherhood between the students; most of the students that are there want to succeed so they take school seriously and are professional about personal interaction. There's no hazing and no bullying either, just a big group of goofballs who aren't trying to impress women and want to have fun.
