Grade School (1, 3, 4, 5) and Grade 2 (First Reconciliation and Communion)

Grade School

The curriculum being used for grades 1, 3-5 is St. Mary’s Press Discover. The curriculum is approved for use by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB). 

This program is designed to help fully engage in the process of discovering and growing in the richness of their Catholic faith.  Each lesson is designed to help your child have a clearer understanding of the concepts presented through an active-learning approach.  This method brings lessons to life in a fun and memorable way through the experiential and interactive processes.  Core principles of faith are introduced in a manner that helps your child to discover meaning and develop understanding while being immersed in solid Catholic teaching and in the prayers and practices that build Catholic identity. 

Grade 2 – First Reconciliation & Communion

To help in preparation for their First Reconciliation and First Holy Communion, the curriculum we will use is Loyola Press God’s Gift (both Reconciliation and Eucharist). This program takes the children on a meaningful experience that will help pass on the truth and beauty of our Catholic faith and the sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist.
