Siena Catholic Academy strives to help every student reach his or her full potential. We offer an excellent transitional program from elementary school to high school in a safe and disciplined environment.The development of each student as a whole person in a Christ-centered environment makes our school unique. The faculty teaches respect for self and others, responsibility, and a commitment to living the Catholic faith.
At Siena we strive to have a clear understanding of the many unique characteristics this age group brings to the school setting that affects learning. Middle school students grow significantly physically, intellectually, emotionally, and socially during 7th and 8th grade. Boys and Girls are able to learn and grow together at this age in a safe environment.
Each day is filled with instruction in Religion, Math, Advanced Math, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Foreign Language (French or Spanish) or Academic Intervention Class ( AIP) and an Academic Intervention Services Program called MAX.
