K-8 Curriculum

Our Kindergarten builds on previously learned skills. Admission is based on a readiness inventory along with a classroom visit where social and academic skills are observed. The curriculum stresses reading readiness through a phonics-based approach to word recognition and patterns. Units in science, mathematics, social studies and catechesis round out our curriculum. Enrichment opportunities in music, art, and technology complement the program.

The Lower School (1-4) are self-contained classrooms that have a traditional approach to language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and catechesis. Enrichment classes include art, music, Spanish, technology and physical education. The courses are rigorous and administer a highly challenging academic program exclusively designed for college preparatory standards. Terminal skills in the sciences and humanities range from writing assignments in cursive to application of the scientific method.

The Middle School (5-8) expand on the foundations of the lower school division, sequentially moving from a skills-based approach to application of learning. A notable point is that all students in the 8th grade take High School credit courses in Spanish, Physical Science, and Algebra.
