Academic Performance: <br>Saint Scholastica Academy (SSA), founded in 1903, is an all-girls, Catholic, college preparatory high school located forty miles north of New Orleans in the town of Covington. The faculty is composed of 40 secondary teaching professionals with 43% holding masters degrees or higher. Our student population of approximately 550 consists of highly motivated, well-rounded students from all socioeconomic strata. <br><br>St. Scholastica Academy is accredited by AdvancEd and the State of Louisiana Department of Education. Our college preparatory curriculum is required of all students with an accelerated program offered to students meeting the criteria. We offer Honors, Advanced Placement, and Dual Enrollment courses. <br><br>Presently, SSA employs a rotating block schedule structured with five courses meeting for 75 minutes each day. Math and Science courses are paired to ensure connection-making between the two subjects. Meeting for a 75 minute block ensures enough time for in-depth, rigorous, hands-on teaching resulting in increased achievement, comprehension and enjoyment of learning. <br><br>Additionally, because students earn eight credits per year, they are able to select more electives giving them a stronger educational background with a total of 32 credits in only four years, compared to the typical 28 that most schools offer. <br><br>Our demanding curriculum, coupled with individualized instruction resulted in our 2016 graduates earning an average ACT score of 25, which is above the state and national average. Ninety-nine percent of our students matriculate to college.
