“I am now a senior in high school, and during the first semester of this school year I began taking courses as a Take Credit student at Holy Apostles. It has been a truly wonderful experience! I am constantly surrounded by classmates, who share the same Faith and morals as me, and who are also very dedicated to their academic success and supportive of one another. It is such a wonderful experience being on campus, surrounded by sisters, seminarians, and all kinds of friendly faces. When I am at Holy Apostles, I feel like I am in a place where I can truly focus on my education, the importance of discussion, and most importantly, my Catholic Faith. The same atmosphere can be found in the classrooms with the teachers and faculty.”
