Stronger Together, Preparing for the Future, Continuing the Dream.
The Catholic school region of Staten Island is proud of all we have accomplished in the past year. With Christ as our model, our schools are dedicated to providing all students with a nurturing learning environment that reflects the values, and traditions of our Faith.
As we turn the page on another school year, we are proud to announce that for the fifth year, our schools have outperformed their public and charter school counterparts in New York State mathematics and ELA test scores.
The journey begins in preschool where our students’ formative years of education are developed and encouraged both socially, and emotionally. The belief that our schools are community buildings is supported through strong relationships between the youngest and oldest students. We provide valuable leadership opportunities for our students to become positive role models for each other.
Our students come to us with unique God-given talents, abilities, and interests. They are artists, scientists, musicians, writers, athletes, historians, and mathematicians, and we are committed to updating our classrooms with flexible seating, sensory walkways, and the addition of programming and materials to meet the increasingly diverse needs of our learners. We support and promote the needs of all students from remediation to enrichment through the use of technology. We believe when we teach to each child’s own gifts, and when they are engaged on a personal level — one child at a time — they have a greater chance to succeed. We treat our students as the individuals they are, and that approach has proven successful.
Technology is an integral component in our classrooms. Our blended learning program continues to expand with ChromeBooks and iPads in the classrooms in many of our schools from Kindergarten through 8th grade. The Seamless Online Learning Experience (SOLE) program, which began six years ago, utilizes iPad and Blackbaud technologies, and continues to expose the students in grades six to eight in most of our schools to top?quality professors and student mentors. We are committed to the education of our faculty and students to use the most current technology including Google Apps for Education, Computer Based Testing, Interactive boards, Chromebooks, iPads, and an increase in bandwidth and access points. Additionally, our students participate in the annual robotics competition, which further reinforces our commitment to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM).
The wonderful classroom experiences and atmosphere we provide to our students are a direct reflection of the dedication of our principals, teachers, and staff. We appreciate each and every one of them. Our community continues to be committed to developing responsible citizens by promoting academic success and preparing students for high school and beyond.
