  • What parents are saying:
    "This is the best school in Manchester. I give it 5 stars. Would send my kids back if I had to do it over. Discipline, community spirit, focus on learning."

    "Both my children attended Saint Catherine School and we loved it. The staff was excellent and challenged each child to bring out their best. We found the school to be a loving and caring Christian environment."

    "The staff of St. Catherine has always been courteous to me as a parent, with teachers who are happily accessible--even after normal school hours. I feel good about the Catholic environment fostered at the school, as well as the challenging curriculum. My daughter especially enjoys her music classes. I strongly recommend St. Catherine to anyone seeking a small, friendly, Christian learning environment where children are truly encouraged to spread their wings academically, creatively, and spiritually!"

    "I can't say enough about St. Catherine of Siena School! It has been such a pleasure to send my children there. I believe that there is no better staff anywhere! The staff cares deeply for the children and goes the extra mile to make their learning experience first rate! The administration is accessible, supportive, and always available! I love all the extra-curricular activities that my children are involved in! The special enrichment programs/specials are top notch and round out my children's education beautifully! Thank you, St. Catherine!"

Questions #2 - What do you enjoy doing as a family?

We are a big sports family.  If it involves any sort of stick or ball or running we probably want to be involved.  Meghan and Caroline are both hockey players - Meghan on the Lady Monarchs and Caroline on the West River Royals.  John just started to play this summer.  The kids play soccer in the fall, and we also do a few 5K's together.  We love to watch sports together and cheer on our favorite teams. It is even better for the kids when they get to stay up past bedtime!  

Question #3 - Describe a memorable event, experience, tour highlight, or unique characteristic of Saint Catherine of Siena School.

One of the things that we love so much about St. Catherine of Siena School is the sense of community.  I think that one of the things that my kids looked forward to a lot this year were the dress-down days.   Dress down days meant that not only did they get to wear something besides their uniform, but the premise was that you would make a donation to a worthy cause, whether it is a family in need, a charity, or the service project of a fellow family.  There were a few times that my kids accused me of "not giving enough"!  I think that the school is instilling in them the importance of "doing unto others." Teaching this value at a young age will hopefully help promote a lifetime of service to those in need.

Questions #1 - What do you enjoy doing as a family?

Kevin’s family is from Nantucket, so we have been going each summer since the girls were born.  We love the beaches there and enjoy playing in the sand; snorkeling, boogie boarding and more recently paddle boarding.  Since moving from NJ, we have also enjoyed exploring the mountains and seacoast of NH.  During the winter you might find us at Tri-Town ice skating or at Loon and Pat’s Peak skiing.  Generally though, we enjoy being at home eating Dad’s Panini sandwiches or making pizza and playing games like wiffle ball!

Question #2 - Describe a memorable event, experience, tour highlight, or unique characteristic of Saint Catherine of Siena School.

One of the most memorable experiences since becoming a part of the Saint Catherine of Siena School community was our first Family Fun Night where we had a chance to meet other families.  Kevin discovered that several of his (or his brother’s) friends from Trinity High School have also chosen St Catherine’s school for their children. They have reconnected after 20+ years. (We found out that even Principal Bergeron’s sons are familiar names to our family!).  We love the sense of pride and community that Saint Catherine’s brings about with events such as Kids Caring for Kids, Family Fun Night, Run for The Roses Social, Field Day, and the music and art shows.  Another highlight was Adrienne’s kindergarten graduation ceremony; the songs and presentation were so sweet, and each child was recognized for his or her uniqueness.
