    "Willows Academy has been an amazing school for our daughter. The school culture has a wonderful balance of high academics, sports, respect and fun. The academics are challenging and they do a nice job of motivating the girls to make honor role and dean's list. They have a competitive sports program, theater/musical productions, several choirs, bell choir and ensembles. The faculty is warm and welcoming as are the students. During the school year the big events/school traditions are the Holiday Prelude, Kris Kringle and the Mother Daughter Luncheon."

    "TWA is the best! Everyone here cares so much about each girl, loves her as she is, and challenges her to grow! Our graduates get into top colleges, but they know that their grades matter less than their character. They make lifelong friends here, and they discover their great dignity. I love going to work each day and working with the parents, faculty, and students to help girls grow!"

    "The Willows Academy has been the best experience!!! From the moment I walk through the doors every morning, I feel I'm home. I've made the best, most supportive friends. The atmosphere is welcoming, loving, and fun-filled! With the Catholic environment and encouraging staff my faith grows stronger every day! Academics are challenging but definitely worth it. I'm a senior this year and I'm proud to say that I got accepted to every college I applied to because of how well Willows prepared me. Girls who come from the Willows are well rounded and prepared for the future."

    "I thoroughly enjoyed going here for high school. The teachers are super friendly and they seem to love what they teach. The student body is relatively small, so you get to know your classmates really well ( I saw this as a plus). The only thing I didn't like was how poorly funded this school was. Get ready to pay for a bunch of mini expenses if you want the class sweatshirt, if you want to go on a field trip, or if you need to buy a textbook. The academic level is challenging, yet SO HELPFUL for college. I am a Freshman at William-Rainey Harper college, and every time the professors make some reference to high school math or chemistry, I'm relieved that I understand them because the Willows prepared me extremely well."

    "The school has a very friendly environment. Everyone is welcoming and accepting. Offers many different clubs and activities, that help broaden interests of the individual. The teachers there wanted and helped every student succeed."
