I'm getting a lot out of my classes and the small class sizes, interesting professors, and genuinely engaged students around me really remind me of Saint E's. The writing skills I learned at Saint E's have definitely been helpful. I also have Saint E's to thank for preparing me so much for college as an individual. My friends here have commented on the work ethic and confidence that they see from me and I really believe that comes from Saint E's and the comfortable, supportive environment I was in. . . we learned to be confident in ourselves and our intellectual capabilities while prioritizing our faith, academics, and relationships with our 'sisters.'

Caroline Ring '16 (Boston College Honors Program)

 

My professor in my freshman writing seminar has asked me to submit my term paper to Mercer Street, the NYU anthology of student writing, for next year's edition. I could not have done it without you!

Angelica Lightburn '15 (New York University)

 

I could go on and on, but I think that the most important thing that St.E's has prepared me for is how to be a confident woman and competent student. My professors always tell me that I stand apart from my classmates in the way that I say and do things, and I give all of that credit to St. E's. I take pride in my work and assignments and it was so helpful that time management was embedded into my work ethic when I was in high school instead of having to figure it out when I got to college. I am so thankful for all of my teachers at St. E's who loved me, cared for me, and wanted me to succeed.

I feel more than prepared for my classes here, thanks to St. E’s. The description of my history course’s tests mimic Mr. Yarnall’s from freshman year!

Apria Valenza, ‘15 (UNC - Wilmington)

 

We’ve had seminar three times now, and each time I am one of the most talkative in the class. I feel prepared to write our first paper because your writing prompts were more difficult. Tell your students how well St. E’s has prepared me for college -- I can tell other students were not as well prepared.

Maura Wester, ‘15  (Providence College)

 

I thought you might be interested in knowing that Megan graduated from Lafayette as one of three students with a 4.0 GPA. Like St. E's, Lafayette does not announce a valedictorian, but does give the students with the highest GPA special recognition. It was a great moment of pride for Bob and me to celebrate Megan's accomplishment.

When a doctor we know found out about Meg's 4.0, he asked where she went to high school. We told him St. E's and he commented that she must have gotten an excellent education there, as well as training that prepared her for college. We couldn't agree more.

Helen Young, P '09

I have traveled a lot since I have graduated and I realize what a FOUNDATION the school gave to me and I want to ensure that continues for future generations. It is truly a special place.
