2016-07-25

 

St. Joseph Academy is offering sixth grade. It’s our goal to have a place where 11-year-old learners can continue – or begin – a faith-based education. We’ve developed a strong curriculum to help our 6th grade students understand advanced math concepts, use the scientific method, and read fiction, non-fiction, and poems.

 

Our key 6th grade curriculum tools are:

• Singapore Math—Uses real-world examples to make math relevant and fun!
• Reading Wonders—This literacy program helps children to improve their reading and writing at their own pace.
• Foss Science- Kids love these fast-paced, hands-on lessons!
• Other resources include Learning A-Z, Sharp Literacy, and Sciencesaurus
