St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Manhattan is holding an open house from 9 to 11:30 a.m. Nov.20 at 275 W. North Street, Manhattan.
This is a great opportunity to learn about the school’s educational programs from preschool through eighth grade.
The school provides academic excellence within a Catholic environment, while also offering before and after school care, conference athletics, fine arts and extracurricular activities.
"Our teachers are highly qualified with excellent credentials. The children are introduced to computers and IPads beginning in kindergarten, and our math curriculum is topnotch. We understand the value of technology and that focus, combined with our small class size and Catholic environment, provides a great learning environment,” Colleen Domke, St. Joseph’s principal, said in a news release.
A Catholic education is more affordable than ever. At the open house, parents can find out about the tuition grants that are available to assist families. In partnership with the Diocese of Joliet, St. Joseph’s offers a Tuition Transfer Grant to any public, private, home school, or charter school student who transfers to the school.
During the open house, families will have the opportunity to visit classrooms, meet the teachers, and speak with the school board members.
For working parents, St. Joseph’s offers both before and after school care, which is run by the St. Joseph’s staff so the children are for by people they know. The academic preschool provides a Christian environment to provide a firm foundation for school.
The all -day kindergarten program gets the children reading and introduces early math concepts, preparing the children for a successful educational start.
St. Joseph’s Catholic School offers the highest level of spiritual and intellectual development for the children they serve.
