Welcome to the Learning Commons

The Learning Commons at Saint Joseph Prep is open to all members of the SJP community. All students may visit the Learning Commons before and after school and during their study periods. Every day, Virtual High School students report to the Learning Commons to attend their online courses, and students seeking academic support meet with the faculty/staff of the Academic Enrichment Center. Students may also use the Writing Center before, during and after school.

The Academic Enrichment Center, now located in the Learning Commons, is open to all students every day from 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM. Students of all levels of ability and achievement are strongly encouraged to take full advantage of the AEC during study periods, advisory periods, lunch periods, and before and after school. In combination with its structured academic support program, the AEC also hosts Math, Science and Writing Labs for students who are interested in availing themselves of additional academic support during the school day.

The Saint Joseph Prep Learning Commons continues to offer a variety of excellent print and electronic resources to support the curriculum. Students are encouraged to use all available databases, e-books and print resources when conducting research. Additionally, the Learning Commons has an extensive circulating fiction and non-fiction print collection and invites everyone to become an active member of our reading community. 

The Learning Commons provides a comfortable haven for students to study, read, write, research, collaborate, receive academic support and expand their academic horizons.
