Kindergarten students continue their religious, social and intellectual development through a variety of large and small group and individualized learning experiences. The program for five-year-olds fosters growth in those concepts and skills necessary for entrance into grade one. Specials include weekly Library, Physical Education and Music.
Grades 1 and 2 follow the course of Study of the Archdiocese of Baltimore. Classes are self-contained with the possibility of some specialization of instruction at the grade level. Students participate in Art, Library, Computer, Music, and Physical Education instruction with teachers who specialize in these fields.
The Prayer Partner Program continues as students in Kindergarten through Grade 2 are paired up each year with older students from our school for special mentoring opportunities throughout the year including special events, activities and field trips.
For parents with before and after school care needs, we offer a loving, warm environment run by our teachers and staff in our Before Care from 7:00-8:00 am and After Care from 2:45pm - 6:00 pm.
