Small Class Size
Small class sizes enhance children’s opportunity to learn. Our small student / teacher ratio allows for individual attention and recognizes the uniqueness of each student. Small classes foster a family atmosphere. Thus, classrooms become an extension of the family, which is always the first and primary school of the child.
The Mass and Devotions
Regina Pacis Academy provides the opportunity to attend daily Mass at St. Mary’s Church before each school day and an all school weekly Mass. Male students are encouraged to serve at Mass. Regina Pacis Academy also strives to foster a love of Catholic devotions, apart from the Mass, through the recitation of spiritual exercises such as the Angelus and the Morning Offering, weekly rosary, and by reading the lives of the saints. Adoration and confession are available throughout the year. These practices nurture faith and become a path of self-expression according to the tastes and temperament of the child.
Regina Pacis Academy integrates presentations from Level I Catechesis of the Good Shepherd into its Religion program in Kindergarten through 2nd grade. The teachers in these grades have received level I training. Children learn the articles of the altar, vestments, the Liturgical calendar, events in the life of Jesus Christ, His parables, the Land of Israel and the City of Jerusalem using beautifully made child size models based on those of Maria Montessori and Sofia Cavalletti. These gentle presentations open the door to reverence and a life-long relationship with Our Savior.
