St. Sebastian’s developed me in to a better student, and man. With a big focus on public speaking, St. Sebastian’s really worked with me to develop my writing skills. The teachers are eager to see their students succeed both inside and outside of the classroom. Built on a strong athletic reputation, St. Sebastian’s teams all compete on a high competitive level. Sportsmanship is heavily influenced. The biggest part about St. Sebastian’s is the community. Everyone is extremely friendly and always willing to help out. Starting from the younger grades up, students support each other both inside the classroom and on the fields.

Simply the best place imaginable. The environment created by all of the faculty is marvelous. A huge benefit is the small student body and the great student to teacher ratio: 7:1. With such a small enrollment, everybody knows everybody. Teachers are always available for extra help, all the sports team compete and regularly win championships in the tough ISL league, and the arts program is exceptional, including everything from music to drama to ceramics. A terrific place to send your son for Junior High and High School.
For anyone looking for an all-boys day school, you will be hard pressed to find an institution better than St. Sebastian's, or "Sebs," as we affectionately call it. The faculty are incredibly dedicated to the success of each student, and most serve for ten years or more. There is also a wealth of extracurricular options, and every student participates in multiple of these. The only complaint that I could possibly have is that the Wednesday lunches are never great, but there is always a sandwich and salad bar for these scenarios.
