SJA’s entire primary level school curriculum (K-2) is driven by our firm belief that a learner’s first school experience should be his or her best school experience — and the primary years are the building blocks for rigorous study that will promote high self esteem that is critical for future success.
Our comprehensive curriculum, taught by experienced, certified teachers, provides a superior foundation for excellence in all areas of study. Our faculty knows how to provide our students with faith and service opportunities that integrate with our dynamic curriculum. These opportunities — such as classroom presentations, participation in Mass responsibilities, class trips, technology skills, world language instruction and more — give our primary students the tools and self confidence they will need to successfully navigate the intermediate and upper level grades.
Our primary program, beginning in Kindergarten, offers a variety of subjects including:
- Balanced literacy
- Social Studies
- Physical Education
Our facilities range from the spacious, expected classroom to the library, technology and design lab, science lab, art studio, music room, and outdoor play spaces. Students in K-2 have access to iPads and Chromebooks. In our classrooms, interactive whiteboards and wireless connectivity expose students to numerous platforms to enhance their learning experience.
SJA offers our primary learners various opportunities to extend their learning and personal interests beyond the regular school day. These include school enrichment opportunities, such as drama club, Girls and Boys Scouts, language classes and more. After School Care is available for primary learners until 6:30 pm on days school is in session.
