Saint Saviour Catholic Academy prepares students from Nursery to grade 8 for higher education. At SSCA we educate children from all walks of life in a nurturing and supportive Catholic environment. Beginning in our early childhood program our teachers create an exciting, developmentally appropriate curriculum encouraging the children to explore their world through hands-on activities. Our elementary grades offer a balanced curriculum of rigorous academics and a vibrant arts/music program paired with the spiritual teachings of Catholicism. Technology, including SMART Boards, computers, and tablets are integrated throughout our elementary grades along with a 1:1 Google Chromebook program in our Middle School.
We believe that education encompasses the academic, social, and spiritual needs of the learner and try our best to differentiate instruction so that we can support various learning styles and needs. In addition, each student’s success is often dependent upon how they feel socially within a classroom. If they feel safe and comfortable in their classroom community, they will be willing to take risks and share ideas with one another. To this end, we have implemented the Responsive Classroom Approach throughout our Academy. This approach centers on positive language to maximize learning and consistency among classrooms.
Our Academy is located in the heart of Park Slope, Brooklyn. Our neighborhood is known for its historic buildings and architecture, diversity, cultural attractions, proximity to Prospect Park and convenient access to public transportation, which our Academy takes full advantage of to enrich our curriculum. Once a week, our 2nd Graders attend swim lessons at the Prospect Park YMCA while our 6th – 8th Graders enjoy physical education enrichment at the Park Slope Armory YMCA. Our students have also participated in programs such as the Shakespeare Residency at The Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM), Brooklyn Connections at The Brooklyn Public Library, and more in New York City.
Together with parents and guardians, our dedicated and experienced faculty helps each child develop a positive self-image in order to reach his or her highest potential. Each year our graduates receive thousands of dollars in scholarships and place into top public, private, and Catholic high schools.
