Curriculum

Philosophy
Within a Catholic school environment, the school aims to provide the guidance, instruction and opportunities that help all children acquire fundamental skills, basic understanding, wholesome attitudes and habits, Christian values and an appreciation for their own talents and potential.

Basic Curriculum
The school curriculum is designed by the Office of Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Dallas and is set forth in the Diocesan Curriculum Guide. Basic to the curriculum is the study of the following:
  • Religion
  • Language Arts (reading, English, spelling, writing and library)
  • Mathematics
  • Science
  • Social Studies
  • Computer Literacy
  • Spanish
  • Music (grades K-6)
  • Art (grades K-6)
  • Electives (grades 5-8)
  • Physical Education
  • Language Science (grades 1-4).
The term “six major subjects” means religion, math, science, reading, social studies and English. Spanish, exploratory electives for students in grades 5-8 and the St. Rita Values Excellence (STRIVE) program supplement the basic curriculum and enhance the school’s academic program. In addition, a variety of instructional programs and methods provides students with learning experiences and opportunities to develop their potential. All students are taught problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Students are challenged to become creative, future-oriented thinkers.
