Sixth Grade Academy Completes Successful First Semester

The Sixth Grade Academy has officially completed its first semester, with St. Joseph’s youngest students headed home for Christmas break. There are so many highlights from the first term – the hot air balloon visit, bible blessing, the Altruism in Action series with visits from the sheriff’s office and Water of Life, service projects, Day of the Dead celebration, their National Honor Society buddies in the high school – that it is hard to say which the Academy students have enjoyed the most!

As evidenced by the volume of prospective family tours given in the Academy this year, word is spreading throughout the Greenville area about the dynamic approach of the Academy, which pairs a strong academic curriculum with a unique and practical study of character and virtue. A typical week in the Academy can include discussions of the corporal works of mercy, how history class can be linked to theology, and a Foundations Class book that focuses on symbolisms of sacrifice and love.

How many other 6th graders in Greenville County got this added-values kind of education this week…in addition to a strong academic curriculum?
