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.
We are a STEM designated school by The State of Ohio.
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 allows are students to collaborate and become better critical thinkers.
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 in the 2020-21 school year, every classroom was equipped with a Hover Cam that assisted students who needed to learn remotely.
Also new in the 2020-21 school year were Beam Audio Devices in every classroom to optimize hearing for all students.
New student desks with larger work spaces, flex-back chairs, built in storage and lockers were added to classrooms giving the learning space a much more modern look.
