Religion is taught daily and gives our students the opportunity to grow formally, spiritually, prayerfully, and liturgically. Different classes take an active part in preparing and leading the weekly masses.
Each grade emphasizes grammar, vocabulary, and composition skills, especially through the use of Power Writing. In grades 7 and 8, the skills to complete a research paper are taught.
Reading in the early grades incorporates a structured program of phonics in addition to the basal reader. Students at all grade levels enjoy additional reading. Classical and contemporary literature are stressed in grades 6-8.
Fundamental skills, problem solving, logic, and accuracy in computation are stressed in our math curriculum. Students in grade 7 who qualify may take Pre-Algebra and proceed with Algebra in grade 8 for high school credit.
Scientific skills and topics are presented through a hands-on approach. Students in grades 6-8 learn in a lab environment, and block scheduling allows time for experiments and discovery activities.
Students learn about our world, our country, and our community. Students in grades 4 and 7 focus on Texas History and in grade 8 on American History. Geography and Civics are taught in-depth to students in grades 6-8.
All students have specialized teachers for art, computer, music, health, physical education, and Spanish.
