    "My siblings and I are all alum of Benet. All of us are alums or students of regionally accredited universities in several different states. Often times Benet has the stereotype of being a school with rich kids with no morals or compassion. Many of the students, contrary to the stereotype, come from low to middle class families, mine being one of them. Never once did I feel snubbed by my peers. In fact, many of them were interested in my experiences coming from a rural community with agriculture being the main "crop." My siblings all had similar experiences. Additionally, Benet's teachers are without compare in my opinion. Many of them are the reason I decided to follow a career in education. It is easy for even an outsider to see that Benet teachers build rapport with their students. This is something that seems lacking in several schools I've been to during my college fieldwork. I can say without an ounce of doubt that Benet Academy was the most influential force in my adolescent years. The experiences I had and lessons I learned follow me to the present day. When it comes to college preparatory Catholic institution, Benet Academy is the best I could have attended."

    "Amazing school. Yes it is hard and a lit of academic options particularly for students who get higher grades. But even so normal classes are just as hard. Those few ignorant people at benet make the whole school look bad. However, many students are very welcoming and accepting and you will find your own group of friends. There are also great teachers here that will help you academically and as a person. They are also hard but I learned a lot from them and still will as I have a couple more years left. Yes benet has some downs in it but has far more ups. It is a much safer environment than some schools and also a great place to worship your faith openly. You won't be discriminated against that here. Even sports di pretty well and many teams advance to state occasionally. Also there is a huge amount of students who are not financially well but also a good amount of students who are. Its worth putting your child here in the long run because he or she is guaranteed to graduate to college."

    "It s hard to believe that my child's four-year experience at Benet is coming to a close. I can remember his first visit to Benet a fall shadow day when he returned home with the biggest smile and certainty that Benet was his future home for high school. From his earliest freshman orientation meetings to last week s prom, the Administration, the teachers and his fellow students have embraced him into the Benet community and deepened his passion for learning, his sense of community, his perception of responsibility and his faith. I m so proud of the Administration s and the teachers commitment to excellence and their insistence on creating programs that appeal to the broad interests of the student body. Thank You Benet for your contribution to my child's growth and for preparing him for the next chapters of his life."

    "I am a current junior, and the arrogance everyone seems to have mentioned is completely false. Parents commenting on how they sense arrogance in the parking lot is ridiculous... judging a book by it's cover much? The students are not arrogant at all, and I come from a "have not" family. My dad works two jobs to send me and my siblings here, and I don't feel any different than the rich kids (while there certainly are many.) Really, the arrogance rumor is ridiculous. I love Benet, and highly recommend it to any parent considering it. I knew two people coming into Benet, and now I have a completely different friend group which was easy to make. Seriously, send your kids to Benet..."

    "I have sent 3 of my children to Benet and I am very pleased with the results both academically and morally. We are not a rich family, in fact none of the families from our grade school that sent our children to Benet are to be considered rich. We wanted a school that provided strong academics, discipline, and values. We received all of that. All 3 of my children were different, the one that was not a strong academic going in was a strong academic coming out. They had friends from all economic backgrounds and it was never an issue. Sure there are people there that are wealthy, but I found most of them to be friendly, outgoing and generous. The teachers truly care about the students and will help in any way they can. I will always remember those years with gratitude for what my children received."
