Parent Testimonial

Our son has attended the St. Monica School for 9 years, and the experience has been invaluable!  The IHM sisters, priests, faculty and staff have assisted our child in building a strong catholic identity as well as a desire to be a positive part of the community.   The school offers rigorous, dynamic, and engaging instruction utilizing state-of-the-art technology.  Sending my child to St. Monica was one of the best decisions I've made as a parent.
