Make a new family

Every student is screened for skills and strengths in his command of the English language, and also in mathematics.  Based upon the results of the screening assessments, our students are placed into groups with students of similar English skill level and of similar math skill level.

An amazing staff of teachers work with the students in a classroom ratio no larger than 20 : 1.

Classes are held five days per week.  Each school day begins at 8:55AM and ends at 4:12PM.  Seven 42-minute class periods accommodate daily classes of English Grammar & Composition, English Literature, Mathematics, World History & Geography, and Science.  US History & Geography, Spanish, Computer Skills, Music, and Catholic Formation are offered once or twice per week.    A 50 minute morning recess and a 50 minute lunch period allow the students plenty of time to refresh themselves from the classroom work.

Evenings include study hall time.  Each term, teachers assess the progress of students, and might recommend that a student receive “guided study hall”, where a teacher will work with the student during study time.

Every student will have an Academic Advisor who will meet with the students monthly to ensure that students are progressing and achieving.  If there are any areas of difficulty, the Academic Advisor will work together with the student and staff to make strides toward resolution and improvement.
