St. Joan of Arc Catholic School educates approximately 500 students in grades Pre-Kindergarten through eighth using the Diocese of Palm Beach Curriculum. Instruction at St. Joan of Arc places strong emphasis on the individual child. The curriculum addresses intellectual, social, physical, spiritual, and personal development. In order to attain this goal, a system exists which provides for continuous progress that encourages each child to reach his/her potential. Our traditional standards of behavior, dress, discipline, and classroom conduct provide an environment that is highly conducive to learning.
The school is divided into two parts: (PK3-5) provides developmental skills and activities; fosters self-esteem, study and organizational skills; the junior high (6-8) follows a departmentalized schedule which addresses Christian character education and making choices according to the teachings of the Catholic Church while preparing students for the academic challenges of high school.
St. Joan of Arc Catholic School is accredited by the Florida Catholic Conference, the accrediting agency for all Catholic schools throughout Florida.
In addition to the curriculum provided by the Diocese of Palm Beach, St. Joan of Arc also offers Spanish I and Algebra.
St. Joan is committed to make the best use of technology in the teaching environment. For this reason, we have equipped our school with the following:
• Computers in every classroom
• State-of-the-art computer lab
• State-of-the-art audio and video studio
• Fully-equipped science lab
The Extended Care Program is available to all current St. Joan of Arc students. Our philosophy is to provide quality care and a safe environment for all our students. Students in PK-3 through grade one have supervised outdoor play while students of grades two through grade eight attend a 45 minute study hall, after which they have supervised outdoor play. The Extended-Care program is available from 2:15 PM – 5:55 PM and follows the school schedule. Fore more information, contact Nancy Hath at 561-392-7974, ext. 5090.
