Introducing Father John V. Doyle School's First Annual Academic Fair!

The FJVD Academic Fair is an innovative alternative to the traditional Science Fair and designed to encourage real-world skills. In the classroom, teachers observe students who are animated and enjoy learning across content areas. This event will give students the opportunity to apply the variety of skills that they have learned in class and to showcase their talents!

Students will work independently, under the guidance of a mentor teacher, to complete a research project to present at the Academic Fair which will be held in the spring. Students will choose a subject area of interest, and all projects will be evaluated and graded by the middle school team of teachers. Students who are interested in participating in the State Science Fair will still be offered that opportunity.

The Academic Fair will allow students to explore and develop their passions as well as see what inspires their classmates!

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.

Refer your friends and neighbors through the FJVD Enrollment Referral Program!
