A Comprehensive Curriculum for Any Child
JUL 31, 2019

All Encompassing

Comprising a parent campus in Minnesota, USA, and an international campus in Johor, Malaysia, the Shattuck-St. Mary’s Schools today are the culmination of innovative programs, outstanding academic leaders and a history, which roots the institution to a very simple and intrinsic grounding - All In.

Shattuck-St. Mary’s School in the USA conceived and perfectly exemplifies this “All In” approach – every individual coming together in full force, and giving their all in everything that they do. Taking this to heart, the academics at both Shattuck-St. Mary’s Schools supply attentive childcare, innovative syllabi, and all-rounded curricula; balanced and accentuated by creative centers and sports programs.

A Breed Apart

It does not stop there. World-class musicians, Olympic-level athletes, and prominent politicians now residing in all corners of the globe have been educated and enriched at Shattuck-St. Mary’s. In fact, a tell-tale sign of Shattuck-St. Mary’s unique training is its breed of one-of-a-kind students who are not afraid to make their impact in the world. Breaking into news locally and abroad, these students in turn have made the school known, even amongst leagues of sportsmen.

"There's something about their teams and their players that scouts love. They have this swagger, confidence in their ability, and they earn it, (in) every game and every shift," said Dave Morrison, the Toronto Maple Leafs’ Head Scout.

Sidney Crosby, voted in both 2018 and 2019 as "the best all-around player in the NHL today", spent only one year at Shattuck-St. Mary’s, but he says it changed his life. "It was my first experience away from Nova Scotia, and I had to catch up academically. I struggled with it at first, but I loved the atmosphere. You can have friendships wherever you play, but at Shattuck St. Mary’s, you lived together, went to class together, traveled and played together. You get to know each other—everyone—a lot faster and a lot better. Leaving Shattuck was the hardest decision I've had to make."

Educating Future Giants

Preserved in rich history, this institution and its spirit lives on throughout the hallowed halls of the Shattuck-St. Mary Schools. The all-embracing culture precedes them, regardless of location, in the form of its community and core academic fundamentals.

The Shattuck-St. Mary’s blend is a specific formulation of academic rigor and discipline balanced with innovative and creative learning approaches. Children from the ages of 3 to 18 are segmented into Divisions, according to the stages in a child’s development. Each Division is supervised by a Principal who takes charge of the child’s learning in that part of the school.

Understanding that children learn in different ways at different stages of life, the Shattuck-St. Mary’s curriculum and learning programs are chosen to reflect not only different approaches at different ages but also a unified vision of education for the whole child. Overall, each child will progress through subjects in the areas of English, Mathematics, Science, World Languages, Social Science, Physical and Health Education as well as Performing and Visual Arts at every stage of learning. These are assisted by acclaimed programs such as weCreate®, Scholarshift®, and Centers of Excellence.

weCreate® is a place and philosophy that encourages students to pursue their individual passions in a wide range of areas such as video editing, lighting and animation, writing, fashion design, graphic design, e-design, architecture, music editing and recording, performance, digital photography and more. While ScholarShift® is a program employing a college preparatory model of learning to help high school students prepare for college through the acquisition of critical 21st Century skills and exposure to community and independent projects.

These and more form the bases upon which Shattuck-St. Mary students reach their fullest potential. It is the school’s goal to push them to academic success and beyond.
