St. Ignatius College Prep Reviews
My daughter tells us all of the time how grateful she is that she was able to go to school here,and my husband and I wish we’d had the opportunity to go here as well! I cannot express that this school knows how to educate students and prepare them for college. They also leave with a special bond to the school and community that they will have for a lifetime in addition to having the the honor of being a graduate.
The food (catered by Quest) is phenomenal, but quite expensive. Plan on budgeting at least $10 per day for this. The buildings are very historic and beautiful, but not very ideal for learning. I found the heavy emphasis on iPads distracting, and think laptops would be far more productive.
If you are a rich white cafeteria Catholic, you will fit in great here. If you don't meet that description, or are looking for a truly religious environment, I suggest you look elsewhere.
