Meet Olivia, one of St. Joseph Academy’s hard working and motivated five year olds. Olivia’s favorite activity is to play outside, but reading and looking at books is a very close second. At St. Joseph Academy Olivia is learning the skills necessary to become a lifelong learner, and which is an important goal at St. Joseph Academy. If children enter Kindergarten with the right skills, they are far more likely to succeed, that’s why we set academic standards that children are required to meet by the end of each school year.
St. Joseph Academy’s teachers and staff are devoted to the education of all the students, but we couldn’t do it alone. United Way of Greater Milwaukee invests more than $1 million in early childhood education programs and St. Joseph Academy’s reading and literacy programs are two of the funded programs that are made possible by United Way. Thank you United Way for enhancing the education and the future for all of our students!
