Father John V. Doyle School is forming a Robotics Club!

Students will participate in hands-on, research-based projects in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). They will learn necessary skills to solve problems, be self-thinking individuals, become logical thinkers, and have a better understanding of technology in today's world as well as the outlook of the future of technology.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are growing at a much faster rate than non-STEM related occupations. Research shows that STEM education creates critical thinkers, increases literacy in STEM subjects, and enables innovators. Father John V. Doyle School is committed to the vision of empowering our students with all possible opportunities to grow and learn in ways that are fun, engaging, and encourage out-of-the-box thinking.

This program is spear-headed by one of our parents, Mrs. Karen Teoli, MSPO, CPO. Mrs. Teoli is a Certified Prosthetist/Orthotist and has been practicing in the field of Prosthetics and Orthotics (a STEM career field) for the last 15 years.

The Mission of Father John V. Doyle School is to provide students with a solid, well-rounded education based on Roman Catholic Tradition.

We live the Word of God in a caring, safe, and nurturing environment.
