LOVE St. Monica Academy! The teachers are amazing and it is a wonderful school community. Very proud to send our children here.

After realizing what this school has to offer I started to doubt that it is worth the money. I decided to give it a try and transfer my two kids to Garvy, and this is one of the best decisions I have made in my life.

My oldest son graduated from St Monica and went on to Notre Dame. At best both schools were average. By the time I was sending my two youngest to St Monica, it had taken a nosedive. My youngest daughter transferred to Garvy in second grade and I haven't looked back. The St Monica teachers were trying ...  Read more

St. Monica Academy is a great school because they are a green school and they really try very hard to get all the students involved.
