A Principal's Welcome to Prospective Parents
2014-2015 School Year
St. Brendan School has so many great things to offer. I want to welcome you to learn more about what makes our school such an invaluable and lively place to encounter Christ together in faith, beliefs and education.
St. Brendan Catholic Parish School was founded in 1964 and has been a strong presence in the community ever since. We offer 3- & 4-year-old preschool, full-day kindergarten and first through eighth grades on our nine-acre campus.
Researched best practices and integrated technology are used in lessons to connect learning with real-life application. Interactive lessons, project-based learning, and authentic assessments enable students to be active participants in their education.
In January, 2015 we will enter into Phase I of our 1-1 technology program with the Jr. High students. Each 6th-8th grader will have their own mini iPad and begin to experience the academic opportunities that accompany the 1-1 initiative.
We offer the standard state of Ohio curriculum infused with our Catholic Identity. In addition, St. Brendan School has advanced programs: Spanish (Pre-8), research methods, algebra, advanced math and science, as well as many more wellness and enrichment programs.
The addition of a Curriculum Coordinator to our faculty this year has proved to be beneficial. Her role includes: researching classroom instruction that works, investigating new technology that will enhance learning opportunities and teaching study skills and test-taking skills to grades 1-8.
Our faculty is dedicated, licensed professionals that strive to cultivate the student's spiritual growth and academic achievement. They are appropriately challenged so they may thrive in all facets of the faith-based education provided. We invite you to come visit St. Brendan School and experience for yourself, the warm, nurturing environment.
