“Our PreK program is a one-year program designed to prepare the students to enter Kindergarten. If a child is not ready to progress to the next grade level, the school will make the final decision. If a family has doubts about a child’s readiness for the program, they should express this concern to the school prior to (or at the time of) acceptance and the school will guide them in the best decision for their child.”
RELIGION - As Catholic school educators, we infuse Gospel values into every area of our curriculum. Children have 5th grade prayer friends and attend mass on Fridays. Students will focus on a Saint and a virtue for each month.
LITERACY – The core of literacy is based on pre-literacy skills such as letter and sound recognition. This is reinforced through our Handwriting Without Tears program. Literacy is also incorporated into our other core subjects such as Math, Religion, and weekly STEM and cooking projects.
4K students attend Spanish, Music, Computer, P.E., and Library each week.
