St. Catherine's Leads the way in Personalized Learning
St. Catherine - St. Lucy was one of three schools in the Archdiocese of Chicago to lead the way in piloting a cutting edge "blended learning" program offered through Leap Innovations (Chicago) and a $1 million grant from the Chicago Mercantile Exchange (click here for article). This modern method of personalizing the learning environment is a real game changer for our students. Our pilot year involved a roll out for our 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade classrooms. We have seen a significant growth in academic achievement related to our reading curriculum. Our pilot group of students have made gains of nearly 40% in just 4 months in their personalized learning environment.
Timeless Teachings in a Changing World
Cursive. Religion. Reading. Math. Social Studies. Science. Catholic education has stayed the course in its tradition of bringing the absolute best teaching practices, latest curriculum, and technology to every student. St. Catherine's follows the learning standards set by the Archdiocese of Chicago and the Illinois State Board of Education. What makes us unique? Our faculty take the time to meet the learning needs of each student by contouring lessons, classwork, and homework to bring academic success. We can't do it alone though! We are blessed with the most wonderful volunteer staff that is wholeheartedly committed to advancing student learning. Both reading and math tutoring happen during the school day complimented by our after school tutors that help students with homework.
