Frassati Catholic Academy Middle School Overview

At Frassati we know that middle school is one of the most important junctures of a students’ education. It’s a time full of changes and challenges, but also growth and reward.

Our fundamental STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) curriculum is fine tuned to make the most of this important transitional time between Elementary and High School. Download Frassati Catholic Academy Middle School Brochure

23 Amazing Ways Catholic School Benefits Students!

Personalized Education with Individual Attention

Now more importantly than ever, individual assessment and attention is the key to success. Our Middle School faculty work in a team environment ensuring that they go beyond teaching our students, they get to know our students on a personal level. This level of personal understanding and attention is not only crucial for academic success now, but also gives each student the personalized tools they need to succeed in high school and beyond.

Middle School faculty have office hours on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday of each week from 2:15pm-3:00pm. Students are provided a safe, quiet environment to complete homework, retake tests or just get extra help. These are not tutoring sessions, rather a monitored learning environment giving students an edge to succeed and faculty valuable time to get to know each student.
