When reflecting on his Curley experience, John says: “During my years at Curley, I grew and matured to understand the value of a Catholic education. Although I did not realize it at that time, I truly became aware of the depth of knowledge that was imparted to me at Curley when I reached college and saw that the Curley educational foundation was head and shoulders above many of my college classmates. In addition, the virtues of high moral standards and respect that I learned at Curley have served me well in my leadership roles.”
John encourages those seeking a high school to choose Curley. “When so many schools are just pushing academics, scoring well on the SAT and getting into the right college, consider that Curley will give you all of those opportunities, but will also provide you with the skills to be a compassionate leader in your chosen professional field, your community and your life.”
