FROM A KINDERGARTEN PARENT
“The sense of love and community starts right away. As the year has passed, we have noticed that each staff member does the most they can do to help and make any situation as good as possible. Academically, we are so proud of the work that our son is accomplishing. We are able to praise his work and as his teacher has done the same for him, he just beams. The fostering of his spirit is also evident as we walk the halls and he proudly points to the work of his friends. His caring attitude is fed and encouraged here. A family friend said that some of the work our students were doing in kindergarten would be considered second grade work in Ontario. It is no wonder that St. Francis students are accomplishing so much. A good foundation is essential.”
FROM A NON-CATHOLIC FAMILY
“Our family loves every aspect of Grand Traverse Area Catholic Schools, from the outstanding faculty to the incredible families who have become like family to us, to the inspiring, faith-driven atmosphere. Although we are not members of the Catholic Church, our family has grown closer to God through many discussions at the dinner table about what we believe, why we believe, and why we respect all beliefs. GTACS has been a wonderful place for our children to grow spiritually as well as academically.”
FROM A FAMILY THAT TRANSFERRED
“This year, we transferred our seventh grade son to Grand Traverse Area Catholic Schools and we are so happy with our decision. Since the best investment in our child’s future is education, we wanted to choose a school with excellence in academic preparation and a strong curriclum. We also wanted our child to grow intellectually, spiritually and socially. Our experience so far has been amazing. The teachers and administration have been wonderful in providing the tools for our son to succeed in every way for the future.”
