We embrace a collaborative culture and a student-centered approach to teaching. Our integrated curriculum supports the comprehensive educational and spiritual growth of our students, with challenging and multi-faceted cross-curricular connections in Mathematics, Science, STEM/STREAM, Language Arts, Religion, Social Studies, Music and Fine Arts. By eighth grade, our students demonstrate high school readiness with the completion of an intensive Capstone Project, focused on a topic of their choice. Our students learn executive function skills for success in high school: time management, public speaking, research and organization. ln 2022 and 2023, 100% of St. E’s graduates applying to private high schools were offered acceptance to the institution of their choice – many with merit scholarships.

Each day, our children are actively engaged in purposeful instruction laser-focused on transforming even our youngest students into fluent and competent readers, writers, and thinkers.
