By Lake Catholic High School

At Lake Catholic High School, we know that a student’s love of learning starts in the classroom. While in school, students are inspired by their instructors and their peers, engaging with the material and growing academically and as individuals.

Lake Catholic provides students with an academic environment that will help them thrive. Our small class sizes make all the difference, allowing for the implementation of a student-centered approach to learning. With a student-teacher ratio of 15:1 and an average class size of 19 students, we ensure that the needs of each and every student are met by instructors. Small class sizes also allow students to have the guidance and support needed to explore their individual interests, allowing them to build skills in the subjects they're passionate about. 

Read on to discover the value of small class sizes at our private high school.

Small Class Sizes Make Student-Centered Learning Possible

When it comes to academic success at our Catholic prep school, a student-centered approach to education means that teachers act as facilitators of learning. Instead of a one-size-fits-all approach, teachers at Lake Catholic ensure that each individual student has access to the resources, attention, and support they need to pursue their own interests. They take the time to understand their students’ individual learning styles, cultivating a learning strategy that works best for them.

Through small class sizes, teachers are able to devote more of their time to each student, providing more personalized attention and the ability to assess the strengths and opportunities of each student, tailoring their coursework and instruction accordingly. With smaller class sizes, Teachers can also exercise a student-centered approach within their classroom, challenging your child at a level that’s right for them while accommodating their unique learning needs and goals.

Meaningful Connections with Instructors and Peers

At our private high school, an average class size of 19 students ensures that everyone benefits from a welcoming and inclusive learning environment. 

At Lake Catholic, each member of our diverse student body is part of our community, and smaller class sizes help to cultivate this supportive setting. Our students have the opportunities to form relationships and connections with their classmates. These relationships go a long way in contributing to their personal growth, confidence and mental and emotional well-being. What’s more, connecting with their peers ensures that students will have someone to collaborate with on assignments, helping them to keep their course load manageable.
