Academics

Our academic program is guided by the accreditation process for Catholic schools, identified by the Texas Catholic Conference Accreditation Commission.  This program requires a commitment to the Texas Essential Skills, or TEKS which are required instructional objectives for each course.

The curriculum includes objectives to be taught in each subject area.  Teachers use these objectives to plan their instruction by determining when and how these objectives will be taught, based on a sequential presentation of objectives.  Both formal and informal assessment is used by the faculty to determine each student's mastery of the objectives.  Teachers systematically plan for instruction and determine the resources needed to teach the material.  They use adopted textbooks, as well as additional materials.

Opportunities for remediation and enrichment of the curriculum are offered in the areas of language arts and mathematics in second through fifth grades for students whose standardized test scores indicate need.  Advanced classes are offered in middle school mathematics.
