Saint John Neumann Regional Academy

Mission

We are the St. John Neumann community.  We support and celebrate Catholic, Christian, caring, creative thinkers.  We learn and grow into spirit-filled, successful leaders.  We serve God and the world.
 

Noble Knights
Are Respectful
Are Responsible
Are Prepared
Are Kind
And Serve Others


This program is the foundation of our Social and Emotional Learning (SEL).  It is based upon our Catholic Identity and brings together all of our smaller programs, including Kindness Matters, Olweus Bullying Prevention, Positive Behavior Interventions, as well as Restorative Discipline.  By applying this program consistently and systematically across the academy, we will create a positive culture among our school community that will be carried out throughout the students’ lives. The Noble Knights mission and expectations are posted throughout our school buildings and will be cited daily. Teachers have been provided training in the areas of self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationships, and responsible decision-making.  These core SEL skills will be taught to students to develop positive prosocial behaviors and enhance learning opportunities.

 


APL
In addition to implementing the Noble Knights Initiative, faculty and staff have been provided APL Training, which focuses on instructional and classroom management skills.  Effectively and consistently applying these skills should increase student time on task, improve student behavior, improve student performance, motivate students, and give teachers techniques that work in the classroom.


As it relates to student behavior, one key aspect is the concept of “Re-Teaching”. Studies have shown that reflection, re-teaching, and modeling positive behavior changes is more effective than simply giving a student detention as a punishment for negative behaviors. As such, St. John Neumann Regional Academy is adopting this program into its disciplinary model.
