WE DEMONSTRATE A GROWTH MINDSET
Saint Cecilia Catholic School is a faith-based community following the teachings of Jesus that inspires an inquisitive mind and a lifelong commitment to learning, service and stewardship.
At St. Cecilia Catholic School, we support the development of the whole child. We use multiple modalities to teach, so children are able to access new concepts and information in a variety of ways including movement, visual cues and words. We write across the curriculum. As students write their own stories, they tap into experiences they have with their families. Visiting museums, walking in Seattle, playing on sports teams, going to concerts, visiting family in other cities, playing in the woods, doing art projects at home and having time to choose activities all support the development of children’s creativity.
Students are educated through an academically excellent curriculum. Singapore Math, Writers Workshop, FOSS Science and Storypath for Social Studies incorporate Common Core Standards, Field study on trails, in parks and on beaches provides students hands on opportunities to learn about the environment. Arts integration across the curriculum provides opportunities for deeper learning. Creativity, critical thinking, communication and collaboration are developed in every subject.
We believe the following best practices provide optimal learning conditions for our students:
Saint Cecilia Catholic School was founded in 2001 to serve the Catholic community in North Kitsap County. ¨The Mustard Seed School,” as it was originally called, began with 14 Preschool and Kindergarten students. Today, Saint Cecilia Catholic School has grown to serve a broader community, providing a quality education for over 100 students.
In July 2010 the school moved into a beautiful new facility where students now thrive in our program, rich in academics rooted in faith.
