In the elementary grades, the curriculum shifts from "learning to read" to "reading to learn" with a focus on critical thinking and problem solving. Students continue to develop verbal, writing and social skills and increase proficiency in mathematics. Studying other cultures outside the local community helps students begin to find their place in a larger world.
Teachers work closely with each student to ensure academic and other developmental goals are reached. Students who benefit from small group or individual instruction may be referred to our Learning Support Program. Faculty members successfully balance the use of technology in the classroom with traditional teaching and learning techniques to provide the best learning environment for all students.
Preparation for the sacraments of REconciliation and First Holy Communion deepens students' knowledge of their faith and strengthens their connection to the faith community. Students also participate in Mass, Adoration and prayer services throughout the school year.
