Aligned to the Standards of the Diocese Curriculum

Grades 1-5 prepare the students on their journey for excellence in the elementary years. Teachers continue to use the child’s motivation to help them become well developed students not only in the classroom, but as active members in the community. Building respect for God, self, and others is the foundation of the elementary classroom. In addition to good character, grades 1-5 inspire excellence in the classroom through a variety of academic programs which include daily instruction, all the while assuming personal responsibility.
