St. Ephrem Catholic Academy believes that students can express themselves best when they are proficient writers. As such we have instituted a unified writing program across all grades. Students learn the basic structures of academic writing and sentence expansion from their earliest grades. as students progress through the program their mastery of the basic structures of writing allows them a greater depth of expression and analysis. When students don’t have to worry about how to fill up a page, they are able to fill the page with intelligent thought and analysis. Our program is a modified version of the Hockman Writing Revolution and works with all of the various types of writing the students will encounter from narrative to expository.
