Aligned to the Standards of the Diocese Curriculum

Grades 6-8 prepare the students on their journey towards High School. Students have the chance to take either Spanish or French to expand their knowledge. Students also have opportunities to volunteer in community service projects such as: Friends of The Night People and participate in retreats. In addition to good character, grades 6-8 inspire excellence in the classroom through a variety of academic programs which include daily instruction, all the while assuming personal responsibility.
