I am looking for a good Catholic elementary school for my 12-year-old son (rising 7th grader) to attend when we move to Bucks County area. We haven't found a place to live yet - but are looking in Newtown, Yardley, Warrington, etc. Any suggestion would be most appreciated.

St. Andrew's School is in Newtown. It is a wonderful school, fairly new but last I heard pretty crowded. St. Bede's is in Holland, near there, again wonderful with a new addition but it too has a large student population. I think public schools in that area (Council Rock school district) are jammed packed and the catholic shools are seen as a better alternative. Our Lady of Good Counsel in Southampton has a wonderful reputation, and is a bit smaller than the other two. Going toward the central bucks area, there are a few more schools, I believe a new school is under construction in that area. Try the website for the Archdiocese of Philadelphia for more information.

There are a few private catholic schools in that area, like Grey Nun Academy. It has a fantastic reputation, but is pricey.

I have to note, there are really wonderful catholic high schools, private and archdiocese, in that area as well and 7th grade would be about the time to start looking.

Just to help you feel more comfortable this region has a fair amount of diocesan/parochial Catholic schools, and it is considered a tightly knit web. Also, there are great private Catholic schools as well. You might want to check out the Philadelphia Archdiocese' website to located parochial schools.
