2. Will my child be challenged?

Beginning in 5th grade, students are placed in leveled math classes. Other subjects are mixed levels to allow for peer editing and other group activities that are beneficial to students with a variety of academic understanding.

The reading programs used through 5th grade include leveled readers that use the same vocabulary as the weekly group story and are used for smaller reading groups. 

We have a Scholastic Bowl team that competes academically against other private schools.

Teachers differentiate lessons to meet the needs of all students.

Teachers of 6th through 8th graders introduce and implement DBQ (Document Based Questions) materials which are engaging inquiry-based units that inspire clear, evidence-based, argument writing

3. What activities do you provide to grow the faith life of the students?

Students attend daily Mass and other faith based events such as May Crowning, rosaries and monthly Praise and Worship. Teachers take their class for regular adoration in the parish chapel. Household meetings are held on Fridays at which the upcoming Gospel is read and discussed, and students have an opportunity to share special prayer intentions and prayers of thanksgiving.

Students K-8 alternate being in charge of the Mass liturgy and music on Wednesdays participating as readers and choir members. 6th through 8th graders volunteer as Mass Lectors at daily Mass. Confirmed students may be trained as Eucharistic Ministers for Mass.
