“We noticed drastic changes with our son from the time he entered SLS until now.
First, in his maturity/responsibility levels — He's always looking out for his siblings as well as others, he takes responsibilities for his actions, assist others when needed, he's more caring for the less fortunate, and always thinking about other people’s well-being before himself.
Second, in his respectability — He treats everybody with respect, and he understands that to “earn respect” he needs to “show respect.”
Third, in his conservativeness — He understands the value of a dollar and what it takes to earn it. He has become very frugal.
Fourth, in his friendship/brotherhood — SLS is very diverse when it comes to the ethnicity of the students. The school has helped built a friendship/brotherhood for my son with his classmates worldwide that will last a lifetime. Up to this day, our son still keeps in touch with a majority of his classmates via social media, emails, phone, etc.
Fifth, in his college preparation — SLS has done a lot of things to prepare our son(s) for college. The school has helped to prepare him for dorm life and to be independent. The class standards and expectation levels are high which greatly helped him to be more prepared for the college level education.
Sixth, in his faith — the most important thing that we’ve gained from having our son attend SLS is that he has become more spiritual. His faith with the Franciscan Friars and Catholicism has grown stronger and stronger. He's always looking for opportunities to help the less fortunate.
We’ve gained a son that is more confidence about who he is, who has a strong will in what he believes in, who knows what it means to be “respectful”, and who is a great “helping hands” to others.
[Sending our sons to St. Lawrence] was the best decision we could’ve made and if we had to turn back the clock, we would not have changed a thing. To this day, we can't thank the staff enough for the wonderful job that they've done to mold our son(s) in the positive way they have.”
