"When we moved to Tulsa with our one year old daughter, one of the first questions we were asked was where she would attend school. Monte Cassino was consistently named as the best place in Tulsa. Now, 8 years after she entered as a 3 year old, and an addition of twin boys in kindergarten, we are 100% confident that we made the right decision. Academic excellence, supportive faculty and staff and lifelong friendships, all rooted in a 90 year tradition of Benediction culture and values. We're not just part of a school, we're part of a legacy!" - Cindy and Tom Rapacki
