Teaching and Learning Center

Elizabeth Ann Seton told the sisters who shared her work, "The first end I propose in our daily work is to do the will of God; secondly, to do it in the manner he wills it; and thirdly, to do it because it is his will."

The Teaching and Learning Center at Saint Joseph School was established to serve students who need support to be academically successful. We believe that it is God's will that these students receive a Catholic education that also offers special education. Our community answers the call to teach all children, regardless of their academic abilities.

Our primary goal is to ensure that students who attend classes in the Teaching and Learning Center also have access to a challenging curriculum and high-quality instruction consistent with the newly adopted Common Core Standards.

St. Joseph School offers a fully staffed Teaching and Learning Center (TLC) that assists students with learning needs.  Students with IEPs and/or 504 documentation are assisted in meeting individual learning goals with the intent to build confident students able to advocate their needs and to build independence.  In addition, our TLC staff will assist any student in need of intervention and assistance in reaching academic success.  Our staff provides opportunities for families of children with learning needs to network and to provide ongoing support to each other as their children thrive at St. Joseph School.
