Choose Southington Catholic

"We have been extremely happy with our choice of Southington Catholic for our children's education.  The student/teacher ratio allows for exceptional attention to address each students' academic needs.  Our son, who is attending high school now, was very well prepared because of the foundation he received at Southington Catholic.  Our two daughters, who are currently enrolled, are being academically challenged and love the opportunities to participate in athletics, music and clubs in an atmosphere of community and acceptance.  We felt it was the best choice for the quality of education and the right choice to have God in our lives and the learning process."
