Once you subscribe we will let you know when St. Joseph Parish and School has new publications.
Jesuit Father, Thomas Acker, S.J., PhD is educationally retrofitting St. Joseph’s School for the Academic Year 2013 – 2014. Fr. Acker has his Doctorate in Biology from Stanford University and for eighteen years was president of Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia.
St. Joseph’s School is aligning the first eleven years of formal education into three phases:
Genesis: First formal learning – 3, 4, and 5 (kindergarten) year old children
Foundations: Early grade school, 1st – 4th grade
High School Preparatory: Final grade school years 5th – 8th
The mode of teaching and learning will also change. Teachers will rotate around the classes and teach principally in their specialties, Math, English, Language, Religion, Science etc. The generalist teacher will be largely supplanted. Each grade will have a patron/mentor.
Each phase has specific goals. For more information, please call the school at 330-628-9555.
