About St. Isidore

Mission Statement

With Mary, “the first disciple of her son” (Redemptoris Mater, 20), St. Isidore Virtual Program at Queen of Apostles School is rooted in faith, excellence, and joy. We are committed to embracing each student as a child of God while pursuing academic rigor, practicing Catholic virtues, inspiring innovation and cultivating the many talents God has given to all of us.

Faith

A vibrant Catholic identity and culture — Students have dedicated time for prayer throughout the day and attend weekly Mass virtually with their fellow Queen of Apostles students who are in person. They are fully prepared to receive the sacraments and participate in outreach programs such as raising money for Heiffer International.

Diversity — Students from different cultural and ethnic backgrounds, united as one body in Christ, come together from across the country to learn with and from one another.

Excellence

Dedicated professional educators — Our faculty members understand the vocational character of teaching, a call to seek the good of the whole child in his or her physical, intellectual, moral, and spiritual dimensions. They are committed to their own personal growth, many holding or pursuing advanced degrees. They are dedicated to ensuring that St. Isidore Virtual Academy is a Christ-centered school in which students are loved and encouraged to excel.

Personalized Attention — Our small class sizes allow faculty to focus on each and every one of our students. Our teachers are caring, knowledgeable educators who help their students grow in good habits and in virtues. Our faculty partner with parents who are the primary educators to develop the whole child in faith and academics. 

An enriching curriculum and academic rigor — Our curricular offerings provide our students with a solid foundation for life-long learning. Advanced math classes are available for qualified middle school students and our science classes include virtual labs as well as research opportunities. Kindergarten-8th grade students have Spanish, music, physical education, and art classes each week.  Resource and Title I support and special academic assistance are available. Our 8th-grade students have also been admitted into strong academic high schools such as Gonzaga College High SchoolSaint Francis Academy, Georgetown Visitation Preparatory School, and St. Paul VI Catholic High School

Joy

Freedom to Explore — Our students have a high level of flexibility and freedom to explore activities outside of academics. In the past, our students have engaged in activities ranging from various sports at a demanding and advanced level, to writing competitions and publication ventures, all while keeping up with their class loads.

A safe environment — Our virtual environment is perfect for children for whom a brick-and-mortar school may not work—whether that be for physical, mental or emotional reasons. St. Isidore’s purpose is to provide a safe place for children to grow in faith, knowledge, and virtue.

Enthusiastic parents — Parent volunteers collaborate with our faculty to enhance opportunities for students and provide events that support the mission of the school such as Lunch Bunch and Art in the Afternoon.
