Deepening faith in Jesus Christ and providing a holistic learning approach to faith development and education within a Catholic framework for students in kindergarten through grade 8 from East St. Louis and surrounding communities.
“Holistic education is the foundation of success at Sister Thea Bowman Catholic School in East St. Louis. Just one example is two of our students, Monye’ and Keenon who have both taken the dance ministry part of their education seriously. They are now confident leaders and students at the school. They have spent countless hours perfecting their dancing to praise God, just as Sister Thea did, and they have brought their fellow students up the ladder with them as they have moved ahead in developing critical life skills of leadership, time management, discipline, prayer and study. Monye’ and Keenon are both honor students, play violin and participate in dance ministry at church and at Genesis Arts Ministry; Keenon also participates in robotics. They both look forward to continuing dance and going to college to fulfill their life dreams.”
