St. Edward Central Catholic High School Reviews

I love that St. Edward provides an awesome Catholic education and experience. With only 400 kids, the school becomes a "second family" with Alum who end up sending their kids here as well. The sports teams are well-known and typically perform well compared to many of the public high schools in the area. I loved my expierence at St. Edward, and I ask that you send your child to the school that became my family tradition for the last 75 years!

St. Edward is a great community to be a part of. The teachers and staff are some of the nicest, most devoted people you’ll ever meet. They become lifelong friends even after you graduate. That being said, the small demographic of the school does have its cons. There is a lack of clubs, and football can be a major focus, even when a minor part of the student body actually participates in its program. Overall it is a very Catholic oriented, tight knit private school.
I am now a senior at St. Edward Central Catholic High School, and I am able to say that I have enjoyed my experience there. The academic programs are well suited for students, teachers are willing to take time out of their day to make sure their pupils are understanding what they are learning, and the community is overall very friendly and welcoming. I participate in several clubs and sports, as well as volunteer opportunities the school offers.
