PROGRAMS OVERVIEW

Educating for the Future

Through the combined efforts of the faculty, staff, parents, and administration, St. Joseph Catholic Academy embraces an academic philosophy based on nurturing a Christian community that is committed to academic excellence. Our high school preparatory program strives to develop the full potential of every student. Our personalized learning program encourages students to become leaders, to master the skills outlined within our rigorous curriculum guidelines and to become confident, faith-filled individuals.

Our Course and Classroom Structure

The courses offered to our St. Joseph Catholic Academy students are created to adapt to a flexible, student-oriented approach so that our multiage classroom environment supports the individual student needs.  Chalkboards and rows of chairs are no longer learning spaces at St. Joseph Catholic Academy. We offer a classroom model that incorporates differentiated pedagogy, collaboration, and flexibility.

 

The PK-12 Curriculum in all Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Bridgeport supports the continuous improvement of student achievement and is designed not only to meet, but to exceed state and national standards. It helps students reach their full potential not only now, but also in higher education and in their adult lives. Teachers and administrators designed this proprietary curriculum under the guidance of national experts in Curriculum Mapping, a process of organizing and planning what is happening in our classrooms at specific points during the school year. The maps are aligned with Gospel Values in every subject area so that students always learn in an atmosphere that includes Christ at its center.  

A Dedicated Staff

Our teachers provide an academic environment that is influenced by our Catholic faith and teachings. They maintain high academic expectations and encourage learning through the use of pedagogical methods that exercise researched-based theories of learning, understandings of students and their cognitive, social and emotional needs, and appreciates the interests of individual students.

Teachers bring impressive academic credentials and years of teaching experience to their vocation of education. Our students consistently score extremely high on both national standardized tests and admittance tests to area private schools. Their efforts in the classroom are supported by a dedicated support staff and administrative team.

Learn More About Our Programs

Our children are blessed with the opportunity to grow academically and spiritually in the St. Joseph community. The school prepared our older one well; he continues to excel in all areas in high school.

 

The new model provides a unique education environment for our younger one. This is a transition year for him as he joined SJCA from the public school system. Being the youngest in his class, we struggled to find the right balance of curriculum under the traditional system. SJCA adapts a flexible, personalized, and data driven model allowing our child to accelerate in subjects he feels comfortable with while proceeding at the appropriate pace for other areas.

 

We certainly feel our children are able to take full advantage of opportunities. Equally important, the staff and parents together form a close-knit community. Our child quickly immerses himself in the Early Learning Center family. It has truly been an amazing experience and we look forward to the many fruitful and joyful years to come.
