I’ve been on an honors track at Bishop Connolly since freshman year, and I was just recently introduced to AP classes. I genuinely feel like I’ve been educated in a way that allows me to be prepared for the challenges ahead. I believe Bishop Connolly has put me on a path for future success—both in college and in the career I choose to pursue.

The most important thing I’ve learned as a Bishop Connolly athlete is to always work hard, to never settle. Also, I’ve learned to live in the moment and have fun with the entire experience. Time really does fly, so enjoy every moment and opportunity that is given to you during this journey.

I believe the most unique thing about Connolly is the family atmosphere. The ability to succeed at Connolly and the overwhelming support of classmates, teachers and administrators have made the strongest impression on me. I have felt my self-confidence flourish because of the impact of the school and its nurturing environment.
