Over the past four years, I have attended Orchard Lake St. Mary's. I have been taught by wonderful teachers on the importance of being a respectable man. Throughout my time spent there, my academic and athletic accomplishments truly flourished and improved to the point where instead of needing help from other students, I was the one helping those students out. Orchard Lake St. Mary's, for as long as I can remember, went by a statement, "1. God 2.Family 3. St. Mary's" I believe that this is a great example of the preparatory, because we are a very religious institution, but we also are taught to care for and honor our family and St. Mary's.
The staff is awesome and they want you to succeed. There is a great teacher to student ratio. And they have a beautiful campus right on the lake. It is also great that you get to go from building to building for classes. The religious/faith aspect is not overwhelming. It is more educational and is helpful in teaching good choices and good behavior. There are a ton of great sports teams and extra curricular clubs and activities. And even though it is an all boys school, there are many opportunities to meet girls from other schools.
I like my school because it is an all-boys school that introduces the idea of brotherhood to a young man. It is also an athletic powerhouse and prepares you for college very well.

This school is all about your money. If you can afford it, they accept any GPA and do not care what GPA you leave with. Don't be fooled by the acceptance letter!
If you don't stay on top of things every day, they won't either. I feel when you pay this price for an education they should be accountable if there are academic issues...and not just by providing you the resources to do it yourself! No Accountability on their part to bring issues or concerns to you.
If your son doesn't report to school each day they don't notify you.
(Make sure to look yourself with the resources they provide.) Kids can come and go!
Strong Athletics. Not many receiving scholarships. Guessing due to low GPA's.
Teachers/Students are great but you could get this anywhere without paying so much for it. HUGE waste of money. Your son can have fun and make lifelong friends anywhere!
The only guarantee they can provide is they will reach out to take your money!
St. Mary’s was a great experience for me, I really enjoyed how the campus was set up like a college. The teachers are also top notch, and they are not just great teachers they are great people. The religious aspect of the school was also great for me, having mass twice a week really helps you stay in touch with your faith.
Polish heritage school. Dorms for boarders (mostly athletes) Good school for athletes to get college scholarships. Have low academic tracks to help athletes keep a decent gpa.
St. Mary's has been a wonderful experience for me. I am a high school junior and I love St. Mary's. The students are all so close because everyone knows each other on campus. It is a small school but a great school.
I have had a great experience at St. Mary's Preparatory High School. When I first attended the school, I was nervous and did not know what to expect. My school experience prior to St. Mary's was with 95% African American students. My first day as a freshmen was really good. I met so many people from all backgrounds and nationalities. As my time continued on at St. Mary's, I participated in multiple sporting activities. I learned so many lessons playing sports at. I have gained a brotherhood with young men I will always cherish. The teachers at St. Mary's will always be remembered. They were so nice and really took an interest in me. Whenever I had problems, the teachers did not hesitate to help. So, you ask me how was my experience, it was the best and I will always cherish my experience at St. Mary's Preparatory High School. If there was one thing I would change, it would be upgrading the technology on the schools campus due to its age.
Perfect place for a wellrounded catholic education for boys. The school administration and teachers work on developing great character in the boys from the minute they step on campus. Administration is involved and enthusiastic about their job as a leader and role model for the boys. Teachers seek to make the boys successful and are always available for extra help. Opportunity for every student to join a sport and to become part of a team if they so desire. Lots of clubs to choose from as well. Communication with parents is excellent and parent participation is expected from both Parents. All of this is what makes the school an excellent choice for parents to sent their son to.
The best decision I ever made was to go to St. Marys. The teachers, campus and sports are top notch.
School nurse is always there to help students with any problem. Always feel safe while on campus.
Many students come for just sports and it shows with the amount of state championships we have received.
The brotherhood at St. Mary's is incomparable.
Most of the teachers care about the school and their job
The teachers here do everything in their power to teach properly and they all care about every student.
There are no problems with health and safety at school.
The sports here are amazing and it is always fun to go on the field with all of your good friends.
