At Padre Pio Academy our academic program is based upon the classical Trivium of grammar, logic and rhetoric. Students are taught the basic building blocks of each subject (such as phonics, math facts and historical facts) and then encouraged to ask questions, make deductions and draw conclusions from the material as they develop their capacity for logic and, ultimately, self-expression.
The goal of the curriculum is not simply to teach students ‘what’ to think, but to give them the resources, knowledge, and internal discipline to think clearly and logically and then to express themselves effectively. To that end, Padre Pio Academy offers a full range of academic subjects. Primary grades are particularly geared toward reading skill.
