Message from the Principal

Thank you for visiting the St. Polycarp School, Online Catholic Academy website! I appreciate your interest and am confident you will find our online academy to be a welcoming community that provides an exceptional, Catholic faith-filled education.  St. Polycarp School, Online Catholic Academy serves Kindergarten through 8th grade students

St. Polycarp said “Hear me declare with boldness, I am a Christian.”

As a school community, we strive to live out St. Polycarp’s words and declare our faith with boldness in every aspect of our day.  We believe that central to every student’s elementary school experience is spiritual formation. We offer a wide array of opportunities for students to engage in their faith – including daily prayer and religion classes, weekly liturgy, retreats, and student driven social justice service opportunities. Ultimately, these experiences help our students develop a love for God, an appreciation for others and a desire to declare with boldness that they are Christians.

A St. Polycarp student is well-prepared for high school through our challenging high school preparatory curriculum, which is designed to not only meet but surpass the admission requirements for local Catholic and Private high schools.  While these standards are rigorous, we appreciate the importance of meeting a student’s individual learning needs in order to be successful.

St. Polycarp Catholic School offers a blended learning model of education.  The blended learning model is geared towards individualizing student learning by leveraging adaptive software programs and online educational applications.  This sort of educational model enables teachers to better understand and teach to a child’s academic strengths and areas of growth.  St. Polycarp Catholic School offers a 1:1 ratio of laptops/iPads for grades 4th-8th and a 2:1 ratio for grades TK-3rd. Whatever your child’s academic ability is, our teachers are dedicated to helping them earn admission to the high school that fits their academic, social, and spiritual needs.

For those who are current members of our community, I look forward to working with you to build upon our legacy of excellence. For those who are considering our school, I encourage you to visit and experience the energy of our community.  It is the best way to truly understand the mission and vision we have for each of our students.  I know you will discover, as I have, that St. Polycarp Catholic School is an extraordinary place.
