St. Sebastian Parish School

For the past 90 years, St. Sebastian Parish School has provided a high-quality, catholic education to students in West Akron.
While continuing our long tradition of excellent education in core subjects taught in a faith-based environment, St. Sebastian also stays on the forefront of educational technology and teaching methods.
Recently, we celebrated the opening of our Innovation Lab, a maker-space classroom that houses an amazing array of educational materials and offers a large, flexible space for project-based, active learning.
Our 1:1 Chromebook program provides technology that creates a personalized learning enviroment for every student in grades 5-8. The school is also equipped with multiple chromebook carts and ipad carts on every floor to assist all grades in learning on both platforms.
New for the 2020-21 school year, every classroom will be equipped with a Hover Cam that will assist students who are learning remotely.
Also new for the 2020-21 school year will be Beam Audio Devices in every classroom to optimize hearing for all students.
