Academics

Academics

Students learn best in an environment that allows individualized attention, so our classes have 10-15 students per class. Our school accepts boys and girls. A professional staff teach our students. Students take core academic subjects of math, language arts, literature, science, social studies and religion on a daily basis. Students take fine arts two to three times per week and physical education, computer, and public speaking (for 8th grade) once per week. The Lackawanna County Library Bookmobile comes to the school on the last Friday of the month.  State-of-the-art classrooms that feature SmartBoard technology, a Lego lab, science lab, computer lab, library, music room, and prayer room provide an effective and engaging learning environment.

Curriculum

NativityMiguel School of Scranton follows a rigorous curriculum designed specifically for our school. All students are prepared to graduate eighth grade on or above grade-level. The curriculum is based on the curriculum of the Diocese of Scranton and The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Teachers bring lessons to life with a hands-on approach to learning, guest speakers, field trips, and other exciting and unique learning opportunities.

Extended School Day And Year

The traditional school day ends at 3:00 p.m., but learning continues until 5:00 p.m. for all students at NativityMiguel School of Scranton. After-school programs focus on strengthening academics. They include supervised homework in a quiet classroom setting with a supporting teacher; a companion program that provides one-on-one homework assistance for some students; a science club that allows students to explore science, technology, engineering and math (STEM); and NFTE, an entrepreneurship program where students learn how to write business plans and start a business.  Students also participate in Lego club which allows them to explore their creativity.  Cooking class is offered on the last Wednesday of the month through the Plant to Plate program and Harvest Catering.  The Marywood Strings Project is a weekly, pre-collegiate string program for students ages 5-18.  Students learn in small-group lessons in violin, viola, cello, and double bass; participate in orchestra; and perform in a year end concert on the campus of Marywood University.
