Ages 4 and 5
Grades 7 & 8
Respect, accountability, and independence create a foundation from which our students learn and excel as they engage in academic and student leadership opportunities.
Language is the student’s most important tool, because without language there would be no communication. Catholic schools seek to help in developing communication skills—listening, speaking, reading and writing.
Spelling and vocabulary are taught in all grade levels. Good spellling skills make students better readers and writers!
Phonics is taught in preschool through third grade. This decoding ability is a crucial element in reading success.
Handwriting is taught in grades Pre-K to 5 to engage cognitive, perceptual, and motor skills simultaneously.
Math classes prepare students to effectively use mathematics in society, to reflect the ethics and teaching of the Catholic Church, and to appreciate patterns in the world God created.
Science enables students to recognize God in creation. Aspects of life science, physical science, health, and earth science are explored in an age-appropriate manner in all grade levels.
Each person is made in the image and likeness of God. Social Studies ultimately explores the interaction between God in His Providence and mankind in his response to God’s initiatives.
Technology is an increasingly integral part of K-8 educational programs .
Students in Pre-kindergarten through eighth grade receive instruction in the Catholic faith each day. Teachers use a diocesan curriculum, which includes elements of Catholic belief, worship and morality and prayers to be learned at each grade level. We strive to foster a religious atmosphere throughout the school through the use of crucifixes, religious pictures and statues, prayer corners, and religious bulletin boards. Finally, we integrate the Faith, whenever possible, into every subject area.

Thus, “When the soul and body are united, then nature orders the soul to rule and govern, and the body to obey and serve.” (Plato) It is for this reason that I have taken our school’s mission statement as the basis of my own philosophy of education: “We are a faith-filled Catholic community called by God to teach, nurture, and guide children to achieve their God-given potential on life’s journey to heaven.” Come and join our faith-filled school family! I look forward to meeting you and your little one!
