Classical Curriculum - Reason, Logic, Rhetoric
At Padre Pio Academy, Catholicism permeates every aspect of the curriculum. We have never and will never involve our students in unproven educational initiatives such as Common Core.
Our focus is on a classical curriculum rooted in the riches of western civilization, a time-tested method for teaching students how to think, how to acquire knowledge in the classroom, and how to pursue it throughout their lives.
Most important, every subject at Padre Pio Academy is taught in the light of Catholicism that is wholly in union with the teaching magisterium given to the Church at its founding by Jesus (Matthew 16:18-19).
We would love to show you our school and explain what makes Padre Pio Academy a great choice for your family. Schedule an appointment today to see why we are the best kept secret in Kansas City. Class sizes are limited.
Help-a-thon - Serving Our Community
Please consider donating to our Help-a-thon fundraiser through October 28th. This fundraiser is a vital one to help us meet our operational expenses.
For each dollar we raise, we pledge to serve 1 minute in our community, $1 = 1 minute of service.
You may make a donation on-line through our DONATE button. Please include the student's name to whom you wish the credit to go towards in the comment section.
