5-day Preschool Programs (Full or Half Days)
Full-day Kindergarten – 8th Grade
Before Care and After Care:
Extended care is offered before school from 6:30 a.m. and after dismissal until 6:00 p.m. This care is offered any day the school is in session, except the last day before Christmas break and the last day of school in June. It is supervised by Virtus-trained staff and divided into playtime, snack and study time. Registration forms are provided in the office.
Students are bused from the cities of:
Berea, Strongsville, Parma, Parma Heights and from Scribes & Scribblers Child Development Center.
At lunchtime students get a break from the classroom and have lunch in the school’s cafeteria. Lunch is served in two shifts beginning at 11:25 a.m. Our hot lunch program and milk is available every school day if needed.
In addition to our own faculty, we are fortunate to have government-funded auxiliary services ready to assist our children in reaching their fullest potential. Their services include: Speech/Language Specialist, Inclusive Remedial Program in Math and Reading, Intervention Specialist, Study and Test Taking Skills Workshop, School Psychologist, Gifted/Enrichment Program, and Language Arts Tutoring.
Virtus – Child Protection:
All employees and volunteers who have contact with students undergo thorough screening, including background checks through the Ohio Bureau of Criminal Investigation & Identification (BCI&I). For complete information on screening policies, see the revised Policy for the Safety of Children in Matters of Sexual Abuse, section 1.2 (p. 3).
School admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
