All you need to look at is where EVERY kid in the senior class goes after graduation especially look at where every kid goes from the lax team. EVEN THOSE WHO DON'T SEE MUCH PLAYING TIME.

Not saying there may not be smart kids at St. A's but the school is horrendous. You go there for sports or if you are in a less (far) than stellar district or if its the closest Catholic education and that is important to you--for any other reason you have made a relative mistake or are misinformed.

Ok ok enough . If your kid has the smarts I think St. Anthony's no difference in education than say Ward Melville , Smithtown , Sachem just say. Getting off topic lets talk about LAX not what school has better academics please ..

My son is academically and athletically talented,does not live close to St Ant's and is having a great experience at St Ant's.
BTW,was also accepted into Chaminade as well as another private Catholic
Please don't make assumptions,they make you sound very ignorant.


Haha, keep pretending! Trust me, education sub par. Teachers working there could not get jobs in public, so they took what they could for 1/2 pay. FACT!


Where can I find the average SAT scores of St Anthnys and Chaminade? How do they compare to Manhasset or GC?



Maybe you should have looked that up before you made your asinine comments.

Manhasset is likely higher than the other three.

You are mentally disturbed, FACT. My niece is an ND grad with honors, went to St. A's and chooses to teach there. Please, just stop already. BTW my son goes to public school, a very highly rated one. Many of the teachers there are tenured, lazy, union malcontents... That my friend is a FACT!

If the teaching is so great, why do half the kids have to hire public school tutors? I'm sure there are a few good teachers there, but the fact is most were not hired at publics, so this was the best they could do. Would rather my son go to a school where the teachers are certified. Sports are good there, academics, not so much. If so, they would have a decent amount of AP scholars, or an IB program, or a kid that places in a nationally recognized academic contest. These rarely, or never happen at ST. A, but do a regular basis at the better publics. Dem be da FACTS! St. A lax will not beat any of the better publics this year, and will loose badly to Cham, so why bother?

GC may have a few tough years ahead. Given their strength over the last decade everyone wants to pounce on them for a bad couple of years. I give them credit. No matter their talent level, good or bad, they always play a tough schedule and don't duck anyone. They always play some really good teams out of conference. Rather than sit back with an easy schedule and breeze through with padded stats and record they take their lumps but they get better as the season progresses.

I heard it is so bad one kid actually is at St Anthonys. If you are willing to travel to St Anthonys from GC every day it must have been bad.
I guess time will tell. the season will go on. If they keep losing this blog will get real interesting.


Many families send their sons to Chaminade and St. Anythony's for reason other than athletic playing time. If the kid is going to St. Anthony's it has nothing to do with lacrosse or another sport - it must have to be the academics. Nobody in their right mind would schlep that far for lacrosse.


St. Anthony's is not a good academic school. FACT!
days who


days me LOL

Exactly! Don't forget the affluent boosters that give mega bucks to athletics, merely because they drove past the school.

Why the interest in the Catholic schools.. If your son is good enough to play in college they will get noticed . You don't need to play in the Catholic league. It's a two team league and the rest of the teams just fill out the schedule. Some parents know their kids would struggle being the big fish in the small pond so they go to the top Catholic school teams to get the help their kids need. Some kids have the ability to lead on their own others need to be guided. Not a bad thing. Just need to know your own kid

My kid goes to WM and plays lax and we are happy with our choice. Good school and generally competitive athletics. We didn't choose to live in the district because WM had a strong lax program, we chose because we liked the house, the neighborhood and the education the district provided...

We know people within the district that send their kids to chammy and St As...the families we know that have made this decision did so for may reasons, but mostly because they wanted the religious education and chose between the two based upon many factors including the commute their kids would make to and from. From what we have heard, both are excellent catholic schools with excellent academics and also happen to have strong athletic teams.

For the life of me I cannot understand why any of you need to insult either St A or chammy. If you are happy with your school (again, we are happy with WM) why would you need to put down another school or claim that academics aren't good? As far as strength of schedule for lax, both chammy and St A go out of their way to play tough competition out of league. In fact, I would argue-as a WM parent-that chammy has perhaps the toughest schedule around. They make a point to play all the top publics and many top baltimore privates.

Why do you care enough to come on here and put down either school? You really need to look in the mirror and figure out what in your life is so bad that you need to come on this lax site and talk about the academic quality of either school...

Also will say, we went to watch the chammy/WI game last saturday since WM plays both shortly. Parents of both teams were of course cheering and of course would complain about this call or that call, but in general, very respectful. Not any obnoxious people...well done parents.

for the St A people, i suggest you just ignore the obnoxious poster, as soon as he/she realizes you cant be bothered responding to stupid rants, the foolishness will stop...
