21st Century Skills

Offering the best in 21st Century Catholic Education means that integrated into their academic and faith-based education, St. John-Sacred Heart Catholic School students learn 21st century skills.

These skills are a set of abilities that students need to develop in order to succeed in the future, especially in our information-based economy.  

These skills are made up of 3 skill set categories:

While these skills have always been important to hold information age jobs, students also need to think deeply about issues, solve problems creatively, work in teams, communicate clearly in many media, learn ever-changing technologies and deal with a flood of information.  The rapid changes in our world require students to be flexible, to take initiative and lead when necessary, and to produce something new and useful.

Our belief at St. John-Sacred Heart Catholic School, is to prepare our students for their future, to become successful life-long learners, who make educated decisions rooted in Catholic values, and who function as contributing members of their community.
