My parents tell my husband and me that we have the nicest friends. These friends are the parents of our children’s classmates at COS. Many institutions claim to be diverse, but here at COS, we live it; families come to Communion of Saints from a variety of ethnic, economic, and even religious backgrounds to make our Catholic community a remarkable place to be. There is no question that the academics at Communion of Saints are stellar. My son’s graduating class last year boasted multiple Ignatius Scholars, Beaumont Presidential Scholars, and academic merit awards to the elite private schools—these students scored in the very top percentages for the high school placement test. However, it is the relationships between the older and younger students and the family-like feel that makes our school a rare find.
