Elementary (Grades 1-4)
Children in grades one through five are immersed in a traditional academic program and formal religious education. Sacramental preparation in second grade prepares students to receive First Reconciliation and First Communion. Students’ math foundation is built using My Math in the lower grades which emphasizes academic language and skill development. ALEKS Math is used for self-paced instruction to enrich the classroom experience starting in the second semester of third grade.
Instilling the love of reading is a fundamental goal throughout the school, and grade-level reading is planned along with individualized, leveled reading. The Renaissance Learning Accelerated Reader program is used to help students develop comprehension strategies and allow them to track their reading progress. Students also learn more about their community and world through our engaging, hands-on science and social studies curricula. Students are introduced to our STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) focus during the elementary years with hands-on, problem-solving experiences. Students also have Spanish, music, art, PE, library, and use technology to help round out their academic experience.
