As students move "upstairs," expectations also move up. Students learn to become independent learners. Responsibility and accountability are a primary focus as we guide students to take ownership of their own education. Students learn to write in their assignment notebooks, manage their time, and take pride in producing high quality work. They learn more about their own individual strengths, as well as areas that need improvement. Taking notes, studying, and preparing for tests are skills being refined. It is a year of tremendous academic, social, and spiritual growth. Even at this young age, St. Croix Catholic aims to form young people into leaders of service. We are honored to guide your children through this year of great personal growth.
