St. Saviour Catholic Academy (SSCA), Park Slope, prepares students from nursery to grade eight for higher education.
SSCA educates 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 the children to explore their world through hands-on activities.
The elementary grades offer a balanced curriculum of rigorous academics and a vibrant arts program paired with the spiritual teachings of Catholicism. The school community believes that education encompasses the academic, social and spiritual needs of the learner and tries its best to differentiate the instruction so that those areas can be addressed. Every individual who walks through the academy’s doors is unique so the type of instruction offered needs to replicate that.
SSCA believes that each student’s success is often dependent upon how they feel socially within a classroom. If they feel safe and comfortable in their classroom community, they will be willing to take risks and share ideas with one another. To this end, the Responsive Classroom Approach has been implemented throughout the academy. This approach centers on positive language to maximize learning and consistency among classrooms.
