Academy Curriculum

St. John Paul the Great Academy is the only multi-age STREAM Academy in the Northwest corner of CT. Beginning as early as Pre-K 3, our educators teach our Pre-K through middle school students real world applications and life-long skills. In our liberal arts curriculum, the subjects are coordinated to support each other under an instructional framework highlighting how science, technology, religion, engineering, language arts, and mathematics all connect in the real world. 

The STREAM Framework helps to develop critical thinkers and future leaders through the integration of Religion. It encourages a climate of innovation through faith and interdisciplinary instruction. It allows students to meet their goals through problem-solving, group collaboration and independent research in a progressive and creative learning environment.
