Cheverus is a good school. There is a strong sense of community. The teachers will truly prepare you for college based on the rigor of classes and coursework. You will spend several hours on homework each night. However, the work is definitely worth the experience.

I believe the educational value, sense of community, lack of defined cliques, friendly atmosphere, compassionate teachers and staff, Jesuit traditions, all provide a great environment for learning and growth for the students.

Our Key Club has extremely influenced the community through countless volunteering activities as well as our annual turkey drive in which we provide Thanksgiving meals to over 500 families in the community.
