Catholic Schools Week 2016

St. Saviour Catholic Academy, Park Slope

Maximizing Learning in Park Slope

St. Saviour Catholic Academy, Park Slope, prepares students from nursery to grade eighth for higher education. We educate children from all walks of life in a nurturing and supportive Catholic environment. Beginning in the early childhood program, teachers create an exciting, developmentally appropriate curriculum encouraging children to explore the world through hands-on activities. Elementary grades offer a balanced curriculum of rigorous academics and a arts/music program paired with the spiritual teachings of Catholicism. Technology, including SMART Boards, computers and tablets are integrated throughout elementary grades along with a 1:1 Google Chromebook program in the middle school.

We believe that education encompasses the academic, social and spiritual needs of the learner and try out best to differentiate instruction so that it can support various learning styles and needs. In addition, each student’s success is often dependent upon how he or she feels socially within a classroom. If the student feels safe and comfortable, he or she will be willing to take risks and share ideas. To this end, we have implemented the Responsive Classroom Approach, which centers on positive language to maximize learning and consistency among classrooms.

The academy is located in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn. The neighborhood is known for its historic buildings and architecture, diversity, cultural attractions, proximity to Prospect Park and access to public transportation, which the academy takes full advantage of to enrich its curriculum. Second graders attend weekly swim lessons at the Prospect Park YMCA, while sixth through eighth grades enjoy physical education enrichment at the Park Slope Armory YMCA. Students have also participated in programs such as the Shakespeare Residency at The Brooklyn Academy of Music, Brooklyn Connections at The Brooklyn Public Library and more in New York City.

Together with parents and guardians, our dedicated and experienced faculty helps each child develop a positive self-image in order to reach his or her highest potential.

Each year graduates receive thousands of dollars in scholarships and place into top public, private and Catholic high schools. Learn more at saintsaviourcatholicacademy.org.
