Curriculum

New York State Common Core and Brooklyn Diocesan Guidelines for curriculum development are followed in all grades. By our nature we strive to develop in all of our students a firm foundation in Christian Doctrine and values. In addition to the regular curriculum, all students in PK through grade eight attend Computer, Music, Art, Library, and Gym classes weekly. Students in Kindergarten through grade 8 also attend Foreign Language and Guidance classes. Non-catholic students in grades K – 8 are expected to study and to pass Religion as they would any other subject. It is expected that all students participate in all school related activities, both religious and non-religious.
