2017-2018 Calendar At A Glance

SJCA recognizes that the Elementary School years must build a solid foundation for future learning and academic success.  At SJCA, the elementary curriculum emphasizes reading, writing, math, social studies, science and religion, 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.”   Likewise, math facts and concepts are taught in many different ways to meet the needs of all types of learners.Students take standardized tests every year which allows our teachers to create a personized instruction for the students.  Classes in Spanish, Art, Music and Gym complement the Elementary School curriculum. Our technology program includes a computer lab, classroom laptops, iPads, and interactive SMARTboards, preparing our students for middle school.

 While building a strong academic foundation is paramount in Elementary School, SJCA also nurtures a robust moral foundation in every student. SJCA stresses the Lancer Value System, highlighting one of the 8 Core SJCA values – Spirituality, Humility, Generosity, Respect, Acceptance, Integrity, Accountability, and Commitment – each month. Moreover, our teachers act as models of faith, with daily prayer, reflection and weekly Mass as an integral part of the Elementary School day.
