    “We looked at every elementary school in the Capital District and decided that Mater Christi School offered the best combination of caring and one-on-one attention, challenging academics and a focus on character development.  We continue to be impressed with the many opportunities for children of all ages to practice leadership skills.  This focus on leadership has provided our children with many growth opportunities and some great role models.”

    “My son transferred to Mater Christi School for 7th grade.  The transition to this small private school was suprisingly seamless.  We were welcomed wholeheartedly into the school community.  My son quickly made friends, got involved in extra-curricular activities and continued to excel academically.  We received a great deal of positive feedback from his teachers, including how much they enjoyed having him in their classes; but more importantly, my son truly was able to say how happy he was at his new school- music to my ears!”

    "After relocating to the area and visiting several schools, we decided on Mater Christi School.  The nurturing parish-school community, and the warm reception by the faculty and other parents, has convinced us that we made the right choice.  Years later we are even more convinced as we become more integrated in the school and parish.  Our three boys are given specialized attention in an environment that is conducive to both academic and spiritual development that will serve them well in the future."

    “We are thankful every day that four of our grandchildren have been able to attend Mater Christi School.  We have seen how the faculty and staff challenge their students to achieve at a very high level in a nurturing, friendly, safe, and respectful environment.  For us, Mater Christi represents the best of what schools used to be, while building a solid foundation for success in the future.”
