The elementary school program (1st through 5th grades) is designed to build the academic skills that are the foundation for all future learning. Each day students grow in their faith as they experience the love of Christ through Religion classes, Sacramental celebrations and learning about Catholic traditions. In first through third grades, students are challenged to expand their general knowledge as they investigate topics in reading, math, sciences, and social studies. Hands-on experimentation and field trips help to reinforce classroom learning and make learning fun.
The academic program in the fourth and fifth grades becomes more challenging and demanding as students prepare to enter middle school. In upper elementary grades, emphasis is placed on sharpening critical thinking and problem-solving, while developing specific subject knowledge. Organization and study skills are integrated into all areas of study. The program helps students to establish a solid foundation of learning in the core subjects.
Students in first through fifth grade participate in auxiliary classes that compliment the core curriculum. This includes regular instruction in Spanish, physical education, health, computer, religion, library, music, and art.
