What parents have to say about Bishop Fenwick!

"Bishop Fenwick was a great experience for my children. They enjoyed the atmosphere, the challenging academics, Catholic values, and wide range of strong athletic programs. The family aspect of the school was very enjoyable. They received merit scholarships to college, including a "full boat" to a highly regarded program. They felt well prepared for college, still keep up with many of their classmates, and still follow their Crusaders teams."
"Strong academic excellence, competitive athletic program and fosters a sense of community and strong moral values."
"My daughter was able to graduate from college in three years in part because of the dual enrollment classes she took while at Fenwick"
