We are proud to offer a comprehensive and rigorous college preparatory program of course offerings including honors level, advanced placement (AP) courses, and participate in dual enrollment programs with local colleges and universities to truly prepare students for their next steps beyond high school. At St. Elizabeth, students fulfill their academic goals and requirements within a progressive and supportive learning environment in which students are challenged to think critically and communicate effectively. It is our goal at St. Elizabeth that students take an active role in the learning process and realize that learning is a lifelong commitment.
Utilizing innovative instructional strategies, our talented and dedicated teachers focus on 21st century learning skills and content knowledge. Our 1:1 iPad program enhances learning and is part of our student centered learning environment as well as our educational philosophy whereby technology is integrated into the curriculum through active, student-centered learning. Students use and are familiar with numerous interactive apps, e-texts and ibooks and are instructed in the responsible use of technology. A St. Elizabeth graduate is proficient in the art of research, presentation, and collaboration. The 21st century world requires successful students to be literate, articulate and prepared to succeed in a technological world. We strive to open as many opportunities as possible for our students and spark new interests in order to add value to their educational experience. Our curriculum both grounds students in academic rigor and broadens their horizons for a bright future beyond high school.
