St. Scholastica Academy Reviews

Since Saint Scholastica is an all girls school, the experience ingrains a deep sense of feminism and gender equality into its students. In my experience, I have noticed that girls from Saint Scholastica are generally more confident in leadership roles and are more capable of voicing their opinions in male dominated situations. The resources this school provides allows for its student to flourish in their knowledge and become truly well rounded women.

St. Scholastica allowed me to develop into a young women. It gave me the opportunity to fight for what I believed, be active in what I love, and thrive in academics. Though there were moments where SSA lacked in spirit and support, I hold firm in the thought that every place has their own flaws. I found the school continued to make a turn around. I can say with confidence, SSA never lacked in love and faith. The teachers care for the students and strive to better their education each day and everyday. Teachers help students balance prayer, work, study, and community. That is what SSA is all about and what it will continue to be.
SSA has been a great place for me to grow! Their pillars of prayer, work, study, and community are implemented so very well. I have learned so much from my peers and teachers that I will take with me to college and on. SSA truly is a place of sisterhood.
