The St. Margaret of Castello REACH (Religious Education for All Children) Program in the Diocese of Baton Rouge is committed to providing measurably superior services that address the unique and diverse needs of all students. We believe that this focus on providing an effective education in an atmosphere of Catholic Faith Formation prepares students for their roles as Disciples of Christ. It sets the stage for them to become lifelong independent learners as well as compassionate and contributing members of society.
The REACH Program has two components-Special Education and Lab Services. Eight special education classes are located at five host sites: Our Lady of Mercy, Redemptorist St. Gerard, St. Michael the Archangel High School, St. Aloysius, and St. Thomas More. Special education classes serve children with a variety of exceptionalities that impair their learning. Lab Services is small group remediation of students with reading deficits. Students get pulled out of class for 120 minutes of remediation per week. These labs are located at Most Blessed Sacrament, Our Lady of Mercy, Sacred Heart, St. Aloysius, St. George, St. John Interparochial, St. Jude, St. Jean Vianney, St. Michael the Archangel High School, St. John Primary and St. Theresa Middle.
