Andrezjewski Family

I never seriously considered sending my children to a private high school.  I could not justify the added expense. [However] this is a community of people that will care for, nurture, and remember your children.  This is a place that fills in the missing holes that a regular high school does not provide... Forget everything you think you may know about a catholic private high school because this place does not fit any mold.
