St. Scholastica Academy Reviews

St. Scholastica Academy made me who I am today. I walked right in to high school with an already outgoing personality, but I was immature back then, so being the center of attention was what I strived for. As I got older and started to mature, I realized that I need to change my ways because some people who get zero attention, whether it's from their friends at school, or their families back home, might need it A LOT more than me. By senior year, I've learned to step back and let the light shine on others.
From a faith standpoint, my faith has grown tremendously, from the amazing religion teachers I've had over the years to all the fun and eye-opening class retreats. SSA has really shown me what sisterhood is all about, and I am so grateful for that. I have been so blessed to have gone through high school with the most lit and loyal class ever. I hope that one day, my daughter can experience the same things as me and more.

SSA provided a great foundation for my college education in a variety of ways. They provided a variety of higher level classes, such as dual enrollment courses and advanced placement courses, and employed teachers who showed an interest in my education. In addition to academics, St. Scholastica Academy also encouraged me to further explore my faith life and increase my involvement in community service. In trying to balance all of these things with the many extra curriculars that SSA also provides, I have been taught the value of a strong work ethic and determination.
Recently, a new president took over SSA. For the past couple of years, SSA has lost its outstanding reputation, but now the school is earning it back with hard work! The new president of our school cares genuinely about us students, and when we voice our opinions, she listens.
