Religion is an integral part of the curriculum. In addition to formal classroom instruction, students live out their faith experience through involvement in prayer services, monthly liturgies, sacramental preparation, and community service including:
• Oxfam America
• Pine Street Inn Support Program - Adopt-a-Bed
• Crossroads Shelter Food Pantry
The Curriculum is dependent on the child's grade. Students are challenged to succeed in all aspects of Math Development using a variety of methods. Workbooks, manipulatives, and games are used just to name a few.
Students study the world around them, both historically and geographically, in order to better understand themselves, and society.
Science is taught from a multi-sensory, hands-on approach. The curriculum encompasses text material and experimentation. We have a formal Science Lab and a specialized Science teacher who teaches students in Grades 4 - 8.
Since Latin is the foundation of the Romance Languages, the students learn the basics of noun declensions and verb conjugations. The goal is to help students prepare and do well on standardized testing and high school placement tests.
The Language Arts curriculum includes English (written and oral), Spelling, Phonics, Reading/Literature and Handwriting.
Weekly music classes are conducted by a music teacher for the Early Education Center through eight. Grades four and up are introduced to hand bell arrangements and demonstrate this skill in a variety of performances. A school choir is open to children in grades four through six. The school choir performs in Christmas festivities throughout the community.
All of the classes display their musical talents in two school shows: The Christmas Show and the Spring Show.
P. E. classes are held for students in the Early Education Center through eight grade to instruct them in motor skills, as well as in the fundamentals of group games and sports.
To foster the values of sportsmanship and teamwork, a junior high basketball program is available to both boys and girls. All students from grades 6 through 8 are invited to participate.
