Little Lancer Preschool
Fostering a Love of Learning
The Little Lancer preschool ignites the spark of curiosity, instills the joy of discovery, and fosters the love of learning in students.
Our 3-year old and 4-year old students participate in all academic subject areas that are developmentally appropriate for early learners.
At the preschool level, language skills include listening, speaking, and writing. An awareness of language is developed through alphabet, vocabulary, and sentence activities. Authors, illustrators, and various types of books are studied in depth.
Building a Strong Foundation
SJCA recognizes that the elementary school years must build a solid foundation for future learning and academic success.
The elementary curriculum emphasizes reading, writing, math, social studies, science and religion, and is carefully designed in a sequential manner to maximize academic outcomes. Our teachers focus heavily on developing reading skills in both fluency and comprehension. Those strong reading skills are then honed as students not only “learn to read” but “read to learn.”
Creating Habits for Success
SJCA understands that the skills and habits developed in middle school are not only indicators of high school achievement, but also directly impact college success. Thus, the SJCA Middle School focuses not just on the academic skills necessary for future success, but also on the specific habits that lead to independent, purposeful learning.
Middle school is an exciting time at SJCA, with new challenges and opportunities. Students begin to take responsibility for their educational experiences. Most importantly, middle school is a gateway, creating the habits that will lead our students toward high school and college success.
Preparing for the Future
High school is the culmination of the SJCA learning journey. During these crucial four years, students explore a wide variety of classes and activities to discover their strengths, master essential skills, and prepare for college. Our challenging curriculum provides diverse course offerings to meet all students’ needs.
At SJCA, opportunities abound for participation and leadership in student government, athletics, the fine arts, and clubs. Due to our supportive environment, most SJCA students are involved in several extracurricular activities. Our football players sing and dance in the school musical, and our musicians serve on student government.
At St. Joseph Catholic Academy, we believe honesty and integrity are fundamental in a community dedicated to learning, personal development, and a search for understanding. We revere these values and hold them essential in promoting personal responsibility, oral and intellectual leadership, and pride in ourselves and our school. SJCA students are accountable for representing themselves truthfully, claiming only work that is their own, and engaging honestly in all academy assignments.
