Our Learning Philosophy
St. Isaac Jogues follows a course of academic instruction prescribed by the Catholic Schools Office of the Diocese of Joliet. Methods of instruction include individual focus, small groups and total class involvement, at the teacher’s discretion, based on subject matter. In this way we can employ the most effective methods – as needed – for the intellectual, emotional and social advancement of all our students.
In other words, don’t compare –
As much as possible, we strive for each St. Isaac Jogues student to work at his or her level of ability. To promote positive self-image, we encourage children to compete only with themselves in their class work, as well as other areas.
In addition to the study of our Catholic faith, St. Isaac Jogues’ core curriculum includes: art, computer education, information skills, language arts, mathematics, music, physical education, reading, science and social studies. Foreign language study is included for grades 5-8.
