Academics

Academic Program

The aim of the academic program is to challenge the students to the limits of their capability. Students are leveled for math. The world today demands that students be work-oriented and achievement-oriented. With the cooperation of parents, the school makes every effort to develop those characteristics in its students. The school is aided in its efforts by a full-time librarian, a music program for all students, and a full time physical education teacher. Capable eighth grade students are enrolled in Algebra I, and English I. Students receive high school credit for these courses. High school credit courses are taught by faculty members certified on the secondary level. The school assures that students have updated textbooks and appropriate supplementary material. The library facility is computerized and is being upgraded with substantial new book purchases. A commitment has been made to equip the school with the latest in technology. Computers are throughout the school, and a computer literacy for all students is a priority. Technology is an integral part of the school curriculum. Students in grades 6-8 are engaged in an iPad 1:1 program.

The school is most proud of its graduates. Students have been most successful in high school and attend either the local public school or St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Hammond.
