St. Catherine’s Introducing Early Learners Program
St. Catherine’s will open the Early Learners program in the Fall of 2017 for girls who will be 3 years old by Sept. 30, 2017.
Early Learners is developmentally appropriate, challenging and uniquely designed for young girls. The program will include literacy development, number sense, social and gross motor skill development, creative movement and exploration in the outdoor classroom. The students will benefit from the full expertise of St. Catherine’s faculty supported by the School’s facilities that are designed for how girls learn best.
St. Catherine’s will hold three information sessions to learn more about Early Learners.
- Jan. 6, 8:30-9:30 a.m.
- Feb. 1, 11:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
- Feb. 9, 8:30-9:30 a.m.
Early Learners will follow the St. Catherine’s calendar for holidays and closings. Carpool will begin at 7:30 a.m. with after-school care options for Early Learners available until 6 p.m. at St. Catherine’s.
The first floor of Miss Jennie’s House on campus will be renovated into a home for our Early Learners. The new space will mirror the recently expanded Junior Kindergarten building and will be a warm and inviting environment where girls will be inspired to discover, inquire and achieve. It will be a celebration of lifelong learning.
At St. Catherine’s School, we are girl-centered. Every teacher, every lesson plan and every resource dollar aligns with the ways girls learn best. We provide a rigorous college preparatory education that equips each girl with the skills she needs to compete in a complex, ever-changing world. Girls excel when they experience an ideal learning environment where intellectual curiosity thrives, individuality shines and confidence abounds.
St. Catherine’s offers girls in junior kindergarten (age 4) through grade 12 unique opportunities such as Chinese and Spanish starting in kindergarten, a JK-12 leadership curriculum, Think Tanks in the Middle School, cutting-edge STEM offerings and the Upper School Coordinate Program with St. Christopher’s School. Experiential learning goes beyond the classroom through service outreach, guest speakers, internships, independent research and international programs that allow our girls to expand their global perspective to become tomorrow’s leaders.
A Church School in the Episcopal Diocese of Virginia, St. Catherine’s is open to all faith traditions.
