I am a teacher at the Mater Christi School (full disclosure), and I find it to be a wonderful place to work. We have a hard working and professional staff. Our administration team is excellent. However, the best thing about Mater Christi is the families and the students. Students routinely thank me at the end of my classes, and students are excited and energetic about learning. It is a great place to work and learn. I am excited for my son to start kindergarten at MCS next fall!...more

Mater Christi School is way more than academic excellence. My husband and I researched all the private schools looking for the "right fit" and we knew we were in the right place as soon as we walked in. It is a very nurturing place with structure and amazing options. Our son is fully bilingual and since PreK the teacher are very supportive and helped us navigate our son's educational path.
He started taking French in Kindergarten and we could not be more happy!
He is very well loved and the milestones he keep reaching are unbelievable!
You do not need to be Catholic to be part of this wonderful community and provide the best education for you child. Just visit the school to experience it on your own.

This is a great school. It's what I imagined schools used to be like in Vermont, in the very best sense -- caring, close knit community, small class sizes, strong academics. Our family made the switch from a local public school that was supposed to be one of the good ones and I am so glad that we did. The difference in our children's quality of life, and in turn ours, has been significantly positive.

Both of my children have attended Mater Christi since preschool. Working at Fletcher Allen Health Care with a daily commute to Burlington, this has proven to be a great decision for our family. While I work full time, I am still able to be a part of all important events in their school days and can easily walk across the street to attend holiday parties, volunteer in the classroom and participate in PTO meetings. The sense of community at this school is unparalleled. I find it amazing that even teachers who have not yet had my children in class know their names in the halls. Nothing is more welcoming than when I drop off in the morning and the principal personally greets us at the door. The amazing Afterschool Enrichment Program allows working parents flexibility together with the assurance that our kids are in capable hands. Afterschool seamlessly picks up where the school day ends with the perfect blend of fun, homework time and stimulating activities that build upon the rigorous yet captivating curriculums. When I reflect upon what I am grateful for in life, the extraordinary education my kids receive at Mater Christi is at the top of the list. ...more

Mater Christi has provided a supportive environment that has enabled our daughter to thrive academically, spiritually, and socially. The highly educated faculty and staff at Mater Christi are the best! Every member cares and wants to help make a difference in the lives of the students they teach. They will do whatever is needed of them to help each student reach his or her potential.

Being a part of Mater Christi is like being a member of a close family. Walk through the building and you have a sense of family, not an institution. From the 1st open house my husband and I attended (now over 5 years ago) I knew this was the school for us and we made the right choice. My daughter is making friends that I know she will have and keep for years....more

As a graduate of Mater Christi School, I am thankful for the wonderful education I received. My teachers prepared me incredibly well for high school and beyond. I made the choice to send Ella to Mater Christi at the age of three and am so happy I did. Their nurturing, enriching and thoughtful environment has helped her thrive. I highly recommend Mater Christi School and thank them for making it a wonderful place for my daughter.

Our son is currently in his third year at Mater Christi and we have been continually amazed with the school and everything it has to offer. We would highly recommend Mater Christi!

They have always been helpful with anything that we may have needed, including tuition aid. If you are doubtful of being able sending your child to a private school, I would encourage you to attend an open house or get in contact with someone in the main office and you will be amazed at the possibilities Mater Christi has to offer. It is worth it! ...more
