A special thanks to you and the Montfort family for providing a nourishing and uplifting environment for our children to learn and grow. My daughter is growing very nicely at Montfort and that is in no small part to the community you’ve built on strong Catholic values and tradition. The success of every Montfort student is a testament to the vision and work of the Montfort community and it’s commitment to build strong Christian men and women. I’m pleased with this great news but infinitely more pleased with our being a part of the Montfort family.

There is no other high school in the area that can teach Catholic values and maintain academic greatness like Montfort does.

IT WAS THRILLING!

. . . By the way, my daughter came home yesterday simply thrilled and exhilarated with Montfort!! Thank you and happy 2nd day!

The Montfort Academy is proof that a school is better the more identifiably Catholic it is. You are doing something creative and daring, restoring the noble idea of Catholic education. Montfort, you’re the talk of the town. Boy, you got a great thing going here.
— His Eminence Timothy Cardinal Dolan, March 2017, on the occasion of his visit to The Montfort Academy
It was a true pleasure to meet your students yesterday. I have never met such a mature, respectful group of Seniors before. It is a credit to you and your staff to have developed a sense of self-confidence and moral values in these fine young men and women. I was truly impressed when one group of students started to say Grace before the teacher announced it. I also observed how no one started to eat their lunch until everyone at the table was served.

On behalf of my husband and myself, I write to express our deep appreciation to the administration, faculty, and staff of The Montfort Academy for nourishing our son in mind and spirit over these past 10 months. Not only has our son excelled beyond our expectations academically, but he also has made significant strides in his social growth and maturity. It has brought us extraordinary joy to met some of his new friends, talk to him about what he is learning and see him participate enthusiastically in after school activities, particularly "Swing Nights." We are so glad our son chose to attend Montfort. He knew your school was special from the moment he attended his first open house. Now we know why. We eagerly look forward to the next three years.
--Parent of a Freshman, June 2017
I wish I could no much more for Montfort. I know I have said it many times before, the past three years that our daughter has spent at Montfort have been truly AMAZING. We are so sad that it is coming to an end. Please consider us always a part of the Montfort family.

I want to specifically thank Mr. Greco for having an open door policy for students in need. Mr. Greco took the time to have a one-on-one conversation with our son following the death of a close family member. Our son never had this type of support in any of his previous schools. We are so glad our son is attending a school filled with love and compassion for their students. He really is a different person this year. He is immensely proud of being a Montfort Academy student. Now we know why.
--Parent of a Junior, December 2017
I just had a call from Mr. Petrillo about my twin boys. It warms my heard that he would take the time out of his busy schedule to talk to me about my son's application. For Mr. Petrillo to take the time to make that phone call says it all. I love this school and all it represents. It reminds me of the schools in Ireland--very personable and welcoming and proves my child is not just a number but a person. That is why I chose this school for my other children. It is Westchester's hidden little gem, and I constantly cannot say enough good things about the teachers and staff.

Our son had an amazing time. You gave him an experience of a lifetime.

We enjoyed both the dinner and the show and were really impressed by the quality of the production. It was so lovely to see so many of the kids involved in this event. It is yet another testament to Montfort.
--Parent of a Montfort Senior following the school's Dinner Theater production of Guy & Dolls, April 2018
I would like to thank you, Mrs. Petrillo, the Greco's, board and faculty of Montfort for all that you do to make Montfort the school it is. There is no other school like Montfort. Parent Summer, 2018
