An all day kindergarten program is structured so that a child will spend a portion of the day in a readiness program and the remainder in an enrichment program with a kindergarten teacher trained in early childhood education.
The readiness program will include both structured and free choice activities, and will provide learning experiences in the areas of Religion, math, science, social studies, language development, alphabet recognition, and phonics.
The enrichment program will include Spanish, technology, music, dramatic play, art, physical education, and field trip excursions. A balance is maintained between structured and free choice times, active and quiet activities, and creative expression. Recesses, snacks and rest periods are included in the daily schedule.
At each grade level the following subjects are taught: Religion, mathematics, science, social studies, art, language arts (spelling, reading, English, penmanship, writing), music, physical education, Spanish, and technology. State and diocesan approved textbooks are adopted for appropriate subject areas.
The fifth and sixth grades are departmentalized with different teachers responsible for English, science, social studies, and mathematics. All students are required to participate in all areas of the curriculum. If a child is unable to do so, for example in P.E., a doctor's note should be given to the teacher.
