Academics & Programs

St. Gabriel’s is a place where effort, problem solving and service are valued, and students are empowered to make thoughtful decisions and care for others. Our community enables students to become global citizens and leaders in the 21st century and to change the world through their faith, ideas, vision, and service.
St. Gabriel’s inspires our preschool, kindergarten, elementary, and middle school students to strengthen their minds and hearts in their quest for knowledge and excellence.  Our school community supports and challenges students across grades and curriculums to work to their full potential by:
  • Developing each child’s potential through the process of differentiated learning, where teachers use a variety of instructional strategies based on student readiness levels, interests and preferred mode of learning
  • Fostering scholastic achievement through a challenging and enriched curriculum in language arts, social studies, foreign language, math, history, geography, science, religion, music, fine and performing arts, and physical education
  • Offering small-group reading instruction, called guided reading, that allows children to learn in a way that’s more focused on their specific needs and accelerates their progress
  • Offering writing emphasized across the curriculum, which teaches children to use a higher level of thinking across subjects that challenges students to analyze and process what they read through writing
  • Integrating the teaching of emotional intelligence into daily life through social emotional learning (SEL), which is fundamental to a child’s social and emotional development, ethical development, citizenship, motivation to achieve, success and happiness
  • Infusing STEAM by Design into the learning experience that enables students to practice problem-based, experiential learning and design thinking to create meaningful solutions for real-world problems
  • Providing best-in-class technological resources to support student learning, including a one-to-one laptop program, iPads, and tele-presence capabilities
  • Teaching sportsmanship through daily physical education and inclusive athletic programs
  • Providing rich, grade-level educational experiences and school-wide community service opportunities through service learning that combine academics with public service
  • Housing a library collection of more than 14,000 books, multi-media items such as audio-books, music CDs and DVDs, and resources and equipment for use by students, faculty and parents
  • Making available a full-time registered nurse during school hours to oversee health and wellness policies and programs and create a healthy school environment
  • Offering safe after-school care for students, Saber Kids for Junior Kindergarten through Fourth Grade students, and Saber Study for Middle School students
  • Modeling for all children the Cardinal virtues of Prudence (Sound Judgment), Justice (Responsibility), Fortitude (Personal Courage), and Temperance (Self-Mastery)
  • Providing counseling and guidance through student support services to help students work through personal, social and academic challenges
