Who are Cotter Students?

"Cotter students are motivated to learn and willing to push themselves"- Sister Judith Schaefer, President of Cotter Schools

"Cotter believes in their students- and that single-handedly enhances the students experiences because sometimes all it takes is someone believing in the child before the child can fully believe in themselves. Cotter teachers carry a passion for their students and are knowledgeable in their field. They are easily approachable, and care about the well being of the students, inside and out of the classroom. Cotter prepared me for college academically, taught me the value of getting involved, and gave me self confidence to speak out for what I believe in."
