School Curriculum

We are a Catholic school grounded in our mission and philosophy of education. We strive to holistically develop our students academically and spiritually. Recognizing that parents are the primary educators, we reinforce the religious background taught at home by providing a foundation grounded in Catholic-Christian doctrine. We create a Christ-centered atmosphere, which fosters an environment of high academic achievement and enthusiasm for becoming life-long learners.

 

Courses

Students in grades TK-8 take a variety of courses all of which meet the common core standards enumerated by national, state and Archdiocesan curricula for the following core subject areas: Religion, Math, Science, Social Studies, and Language Arts (English, Reading, Spelling, Vocabulary, and Handwriting). Copies of curricula may be ordered through the school office; an overview of subject matter curriculum is given by faculty at Back-to-School night.  To better prepare our students we offer Spanish, Computer Lab, Art and Art Studio, Music, and Physical Education Classes.
