Timeless Teachings in a Changing World

academics

Students at Saint Joseph Regional School are given a challenging and enriching academic program. Along with our goal of guiding our students to become knowledgeable participants in their faith, all fields of study are up-to-date, performance driven, and standards based.

LANGUAGE ARTS

Language Arts begins with the Rowland Reading Program Superkids Series. “Teaching children to read in primary grades is the most urgent task in education today” (P.T. Rowland, Founder, Reading Rowland Program). This program offers curriculum and materials based on research and the best instructional practices available today. The on-line components of the program allow parents to be active participants in the education of their children. With this program as our Language foundation, students at Saint Joseph Regional School are given the building blocks to continue on and become fluent readers with the comprehension skills necessary to achieve success.

MATHEMATICS

In Math, our goal is to immerse our students in the language of math. This is achieved by way of our Go Math program. From kindergarten through third grade, students become familiar with numbers and basic operations, and through carefully sculpted lessons, they develop extended reasoning skills. Through hands-on activities and interactive experiences, our students are prepared for the challenging programs available to our older students. This culminates with our Algebra program for students in the upper unit.

SCIENCE

In conjunction with the Next Generation Science Standards, our teachers, the Diocese of Camden, and Notre Dame University have created a curriculum which recognizes the importance of the STEM subjects in the 21st century. Through fifth grade, students develop an understanding of physical, life, earth, and space sciences, along with engineering, technology, and the applications of science. In the upper unit (grades 6-7-8), our students have the tools to explain the more complex attributes of each. This is accomplished by performance driven assessments and a fully equipped science lab. Through this process we endeavor to create knowledgeable stewards of God’s gifts.
