Why did you initially choose SCS: John and I went to catholic school as children, and we wanted our children to attend catholic schools.

I firmly believe in this scripture, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”

What parents love about SCS: Everyone feels welcome in the school. The class size is smaller, and the teachers and parents are involved in their children’s education.
