21 Parent Reviews for Quigley Catholic High School
Quigley is the best kept secret in Western PA!!! Outstanding faculty, caring staff, high academics and strict keeping to the Catholic faith are all reasons to take a good look at Quigley. Our kids have flourished here and while being prepped for college have also been able to be a part of any activity
... Read more they choose because everyone is welcomed whether it be sports, the play, forensics etc. Won't find the quality of academics or the chance to participate in any activity of your choosing in any other Catholic school in Pittsburgh. Family atmosphere, ample opportunity for parent involvement and a wonderful principal are some other reasons Quigley is so special! Our senior was offered academic scholarships to every college he applied to. What a great investment in his future! Also Quigley has made "Top 50 Catholic High Schools" in the NATION, once again! And top SAT scores in the diocese. All at a reasonable price. Read less

Terrible school, they push faith much harder than any other catholic school and I've attended a few. They loan out iPads to their students and act appalled when they see the ipads were used to go on facebook. The baseball team had a trip scheduled to play a game at PNC park last year sadly it was cancelled
... Read more because the students would have had to miss a day of school. Putting a premium on education is fine but don't rob these kids of a once in a lifetime experience for one day of school. The athletic facilities are decrepit and not sufficient for any WPIAL team. The teachers play favorite especially in the upperclassmen religion department. Homosexuality is taught as "a curable psychological disorder." All teaching is strictly catholic and if a student vocalizes his or her differing opinion in an open class discussion (as I did many times) they are either told not to talk again or punished. The principal for most of my time there was terrible and lost the faith of a successful alum who donated millions each year to keep the school afloat by turning his contributions into the diocese of Pittsburgh in 2010. These are just a portion of my complaints about this school. Awful place. Read less

Quigley Catholic is a great school. Very academically based. Faith and morals are taught. Service to others is expected. Kindness is the norm.

I am a recent graduate of Quigley Catholic High School. I transferred there in the middle of my junior year from another well known Catholic High school. Quigley's small class size is conducive to learning, and allows it's students to maximize their potential by giving many students the option to take
... Read more honors and AP courses. My last school limited the amount of students in these classes. Besides the great education, Quigley hosts some of the most wonderful people I have ever met! With 2 and a half years under their belts, the students accepted me as if I had been there since freshman year. I have made invaluable friendships and have could not have picked a better choice for a school. The teachers are concerned with getting the most out of their students, and in the process develop awesome bonds with their students. The only thing I can say is that the one and a half years I spent at Quigley Catholic has changed my life. Read less

This school is not for those who do not want their child challenged. I have 1 child attending now and one next year. We are able to send our children wherever we want. We choose Quigley. If you do not want your child having homework on a consistent basis, then Quigley isn't for you. Your child will
... Read more have opportunities to participate in sports, PJAS, musical and forensics. A small school that offers so much. Just ask the students who just returned from Kairos. The new principal is open to new ideas and has been open to the parents. Parental participation is now encouraged and will be expected. Not every school is for every family, but if college prep is the goal for your child, you need to take a long, hard look at Quigley. Read less

Many review about the administration are older. They have a new administrator this year. My daughter graduated last year and was accepted everywhere she applied and is doing great at her first choice Private University. My son went to Sewickley Academy and is choosing himself to change this year to Quigley.
... Read more Drug use at sewickley and Quaker Valley are rampant, and the academics are about equal at all of them. The prep for college at Quigley is outstanding, the students and parents are wonderful, and it gives the Catholic child a good strong base of faith to sustain them through out their life with much less of the problems found in the other local schools Read less

The high price is not worth the treatment by the administration. Spoken to as if I was a 10 year old. Read the handbook VERY carefully as students are disciplined by who they associate with.

This school isn't worht the high price. They don't have much as far as computers or technical equipment. No diversity for course selection. The administration is only interested in your money.
