EXCERPTS FROM:  “Why I’m glad I attend a Catholic high school”

 

“At my Catholic high school,  I have learned to exceed my boundaries and I have realized that I can do anything if I set my mind to it…Transferring to my school has been the greatest decision my family and I have made, as this school helps one form lasting relationships with others; that of family.”

“I have never had religion class before and I am not a religious person. To be honest, I did not like this class at the beginning. It was difficult and hard for me to understand. After about three months I began to realize that this is a belief, not just another class. I learned that if someone really talked to God and pray it will be easy to understand and learn what God teaches us. Now I do something when I have a bad idea or thought. I ask God first and say, “Am I right?” Although I am not Catholic, religion affects my life for the better. It may change my life. Thank God for bringing everything to me and helping me know who I really am.”

“Coming to a Catholic school has makes me feel that religion is a good thing. Since I came here I have learned a lot about religion. My classmates believe in God. They pray to God everyday when they need help or feel afraid. They give thanks to God for a wonderful day. I am happy that I came to a Catholic school…I think Catholic schools are the best schools. This is a school that is full of love. Love God, love ourselves, and love everyone.”

“I am glad I attend a Catholic high school because of the family atmosphere. My Catholic high school has such a large community of people supporting it. The school also has a community, or family, within itself. The faculty and staff connect with the students….The students also connect with one another through the various sports, activities, and clubs that my school offers. For me, attending a Catholic school means that I will be a part of the school family long after I graduate. The lessons I have learned will stay with me. I also know that the friends I have made will be with me for life. Attending a Catholic school has made me the person I am today and has prepared me for the future.”
