Without Salesian, I wouldn’t be where I am now in terms of faith, performance, and leadership. I was able to build up my capabilities on the things that I am most passionate about.

“What I love about Salesian is that we all come from different backgrounds, but learning with a diverse group of people beside me, I can push myself to be my best self.”

Brett '22

Salesian's 1:1 college counselor program encouraged me to enroll in AP (Advanced Placement) and Honors courses when possible. This ideology that Salesian instilled in me, pushed me to work harder and aim higher. Without Salesian continuously challenging me to be greater, I would not be attending the #1 HBCU, Howard University.
