I am a current student at St. Monica and I am about to graduate at the end of May. I have enjoyed my time at St. Monica and although we do have some problems with bullying, the teachers do their best to help the victim. I should know seeing as I was a victim of bullying myself. St. Monica has academically ...  Read more

My kids have been at SMA for over 6 years now, I have experienced exceptional teaching, caring faculty and can see everyday that my children are learning.

I also think it unfair to rate an entire school based on some of these reviews. My children also love this school. It can be very loving and nurturing.

Growing up in the Chicago Public School system, I did not see the advantage to a catholic school. My husband, who grew up through catholic schools, said it was a must! I am SOOOO glad he changed my mind! And I am SOOOO glad we chose St. Monica Academy. I have a child entering 1st grade, who has attended ...  Read more

This school is very good. Many people complain about the lack of extra activities and, compared to local schools, it actually has alot. From sports, to a Forensics team, newspaper staff, it has it all! All the teachers are very nice and involved. They all promote hands on learning experiences and strive ...  Read more
