Exceptional programs for exceptional children
At St. Agatha, we believe that every child has different needs, and these differences should be embraced so that the child may be successful now and in their later life. By acknowledging these differences we are able to sculpt two unique programs, tailoring our instructional approach to maximize your child’s learning potential.
Padre Pio Program
The Padre Pio program strives to serve students who demonstrate average or above average intellectual ability, functioning below their intellectual capacity and exhibiting academic deficits in one or more subject areas. Consequently, the program does not serve students with severe physical, behavioral, and /or emotional needs.
