On Monday, March 2nd, Today’s Catholic Teacher announced that Madonna High School is the winner of the Innovations in Catholic Education Award in the Curriculum and Instruction category!
The following description of our program is found on their website: https://www.catholicteacher.com/announcing-the-2020-innovations-in-catholic-education-finalists/
Madonna High School in Weirton, West Virginia, developed a roadmap for educational excellence which included Healthcare, Engineering, Legal, and Business career tracks. The career tracks are a combination of current courses offered, courses from a community college, AP courses, an internship and a series of MOOCs (massive open online courses). With limited funding, the school needed creative solutions that leveraged resources to provide students with a strong advantage and help them take their next step in life. Once a MOOC student passes the course, the student’s name is added to a national registry that is searchable by universities; this gives students a competitive advantage when applying to college.
