You got it right on the differences. I have also had kids at all 3 at different times. A good kid will be fine where ever they go and i do not reccomend you mortgage the house to send the kid to prep but there really is a difference. At a top prep school every kid is smart and motivated. My kids math class had 6 to 8 kids in it. Average SAT score over 2000. They moved at a pace a public could not touch. At the lower end academic preps the kids might not be brilliant but every kid gets individual attention. I am a big believer in prep schools after seeing the difference but i wouldn't go just for hockey and it needs to be the right thing for the kid and the family. My middle boy is now in college and his roommates are both St John Prep kids and they are pretty sharp so it seems like they got a good education as well.
Yeah but only after they got their 💩 pushed in by Father Bangmealot...
Any idiot who would send their kid to a Catholic school this day and age deserves to get their poop pushed in as well.
The problem is coaching. You would think they have great coaching given size and talent. THEY DON'T.
Kid was never cut, he transferred and repeated. The best players at both these schools are leaving. AP coach is new, so I will cut him some slack, but the SJP coach just doesn't get it.
AD will never make a change and these kids will use it to gain access into Preps.
SJP was on Twitter saying how 4 NHL kids stayed all 4 years and made it. Guy is a joke.
your a fool, I do not have a kid there, but the SJP coach is excellent. He has resurrected two HS programs, won their only Super Eight Championship, and his hockey background speaks for itself.
Just for the record.....
1. Twitter story said four former SJP players "now playing pro hockey" (not "in the NHL").....McCarthy, Blackwell, Kurker, Pinho
2. SJP has made it to the Super 8 Semis or Finals in 6 of the past 8 years
How many D1 kids in last 3 years?
Why doesn't top talent stay?
Fact is not one D1 commit this year.
