Our school has a very strong academic program that prepares students well for future educational experiences.
High standardized test scores and positive reports we receive from local high schools support this perception. In addition, we strive to help students to develop a life-long love of learning and the ability to transfer skills that they learn in school to daily life. Teachers use a variety of instructional and assessment strategies, including differentiated instruction, to help each student reach his or her potential as a learner.
We place a strong emphasis on the ability of our students to make appropriate use of technology to create quality products. Students at all levels work with computer applications that allow for them to expand their base of knowledge and express their creativity.
Our teachers hold high expectations of their students and strive to insure that each student reaches his or her learning potential. Teachers actively seek current instructional strategies that help them to meet individual student needs. This focus on individual student needs often leads to the use of differentiated instruction strategies. In addition, teachers attempt to provide a variety of assessment opportunities through which students can "Show what they know."

Vision of the Graduate of St. Germaine
We expect that graduates of St. Germaine School will develop a positive attitude toward leaning and will be able to transfer their knowledge to new situations throughout their lives. The academic and interpersonal skills they acquire here will help them reach their potential, and take responsibility for their own learning.
Graduates will be confident in their role as learners, problem solvers, and decision makers. They will have the ability to gather information from a variety of sources; to communicate clearly in speech and writing; to perform computations sufficient for daily problem solving. They will work well in cooperative group situations having developed a sense of self-esteem.
Students will accept their role as members of the Church. Their daily lives will give witness to the Christian values of kindness, generosity, respect, charity and tolerance. They will have a sense of their own worth and of the worth of others. Their Catholic faith will be the primary guide in the life decisions they must make. They will be known as Christians because of their love of God and God's people.
