Choosing the Right Middle & High School for Your Child: Saratoga Central Catholic School

Choosing the right middle/high school for your child is an important decision that can have a lasting impact on their future. With so many options available, it can be challenging to determine which school is the best fit. At Saratoga Central Catholic School (SCC), we understand that this decision is not one to take lightly.

In this blog post, we will explore some of the essential factors to consider when selecting a middle and high school, and how SCC can meet your family's educational needs.




Academic Programs

One of the most critical factors in selecting a middle/high school is the academic program. Look for a school that offers a challenging and comprehensive curriculum that will prepare your child for college and beyond. SCC offers a rigorous academic program that includes advanced placement (AP) courses, as well as opportunities for dual enrollment with local colleges.

Recently, SCC has launched new partnerships with Siena College and Maria College where students can earn college credit while still in high school. With a variety of college courses to choose from, SCC students can earn up to 24 credits through our Siena College Partnership!


Extracurricular Activities

In addition to academics, extracurricular activities can play a significant role in your child's educational experience. Look for a school that offers a range of activities that align with your child's interests and passions. SCC provides numerous extracurricular options, including sports teams, clubs, and service opportunities.

Class Size

The size of the school and the class sizes can impact the quality of education that your child receives. Smaller class sizes often lead to more individualized attention from teachers and a more supportive learning environment. SCC has a low student-to-teacher ratio, ensuring that every student receives personalized attention from faculty.
