We Provide Pre-K
Through Grade 9 Education
The Bishop Joel M. Konzen S.M. Catholic School will use a Catholic based curriculum to provide holistic learning opportunities that develops the mind, body and soul of all of our students. It will be an environment where children can learn and experience new challenges that will help them build their confidence while exploring the world around them through play, athletics, art, music and core curriculum. A foundation of our school will be a robust professional learning community, that supports our professional teachers as lifelong learners. Our classrooms will be digitally enhanced and most importantly we will champion a safe, nurturing, and Christ-like atmosphere.
We Provide Medical Care For Our Children And The Community
The Health Centre will save many lives. Even the most basic healthcare is otherwise unavailable in the rural area of the Volta region where the Pope Francis School is located.
The Health Centre will be used as a clinic for our children along with becoming the headquarters of PFSHC mobile outreach that will provide healthcare, preventative medicine and education to the most vulnerable in the Volta region.
We Provide Community Outreach
Partnering with our community is essential to our mission. Sister Justine and our staff have been providing food, medicine, books and compassion to our entire community for many years prior to our 2022 official opening. We are truly blessed to have Sister’s untiring dedication to the community.
We Provide Food and Water
Food and water, taken for granted by most all of us, is the key to helping our children who are inflicted with HIV. Only then can they absorb the medicine they need to combat their illness. Without food and clean water they simply cannot survive.
We Provide Healthcare
It will be staffed by Board Certified Physicians and licensed Registered Nurses. A fully equipped laboratory and a pharmacy will be onsite in expectation of 5,000 patients per year. Our second addition will also include a maternity wing for new mothers.
We Provide Education
Our onsite school will educate 200 children from Pre -K to grade 8, with 100 of the students living on our campus in the girls and boys dormitories. Our teachers and staff will follow a Christ-centered curriculum to help each child reach their full potential and become compassionate leaders of our future!
