St. Edmund’s Academy’s distinctive emphasis on social, emotional, and cognitive development begins from students’ very first day in our Early Childhood Program and extends to the end of their 8th grade year. From the beginning, we place emphasis on the whole-child, meeting all children at their own levels and helping them progress forward.
In the Early Childhood Program, the climate is nurturing while still challenging students to learn, to discover, and to be a good friend. Our teachers foster an excitement and passion for learning in students that we maintain and enhance throughout their years at SEA. Our students explore a lot each day—in the classroom, at lunch, on the Playdeck, on field trips, or while interacting with their buddies from the older grades, or engaged in community service activities. Classroom activities are thematic and enriched with creative, hands-on activities centered on literacy, numeracy, science, social studies, art, and technology.
