The school curriculum is designed to prepare the students for high school and to further the academic goals, which they may choose to pursue. The areas of study include Religion, Reading, Mathematics, Language Arts, Social Studies, Science, Physical Education, Safe Environment, and Fine Arts.
Students receive daily religious instruction. Family Life education is a part of the curriculum for religious education. In a Catholic school dedicated to spreading the Gospel message of Jesus Christ, all students are expected to participate in religion class and school prayer. Students participate in a school liturgy (Eucharist or para-liturgical prayer service) approximately once a month. Students are responsible for helping in the planning of the school liturgies. Parents are always welcome to attend school liturgies. Grade 8 students attend 2 retreats and we have many prayer services.
Those children, grade 2 and above, who have been baptized in the Catholic Church and whose parents desire that they be prepared for the sacraments of First Reconciliation (Confession) and First Eucharist (Holy Communion) are given special instruction for these sacraments. Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist is part of the second grade religion curriculum. Parents attend a minimum of two mandatory informational meetings during students’ sacramental preparation. (See fee schedule.)
Service Learning is a part of the curriculum at every grade level. Different opportunities throughout the year are presented for our children to offer service or contributions to those in need (e.g. Thanksgiving food drives, Lenten money collections for the poor, classroom visits to the elderly in Convalescent Homes, etc.).
