St. John Bosco Catholic School is committed to providing academic excellence with
a strong foundation in basic skills. The curriculum is built on national and state standards
and is updated annually to reflect the growing body of educational research.
To improve academic success and close achievement gaps, research heavily documents the benefits of an early learning program for children. The combination of a nurturing environment and learning activities has a lasting effect on children’s school success. The children at St. John Bosco are engaged in highly interactive indoor and outdoor activities that encourage them to explore the world around them while learning important skills that will prepare them for Kindergarten.
The St. John Bosco 4 Year Old Kindergarten Program:
- Provides learning opportunities through play-based instruction

- The student to adult ratio is 10:1
- Children must be four years old on or before September 1 of each year

Project Lead The Way (PLTW)
Cohesive, Hands-On Learning Experiences
We believe all students – beginning at a young age – need access to real-world, applied learning experiences that empower them to gain the skills they need to thrive in college, career, and beyond. That’s why our pathways in computer science, engineering, and biomedical science provide hands-on learning opportunities from the first day of kindergarten through eighth grade. PLTW’s research-supported approach empowers students to discover and explore interests, imagine and design solutions to real-world challenges, and become independent, confident problem solvers.
