Curriculum

St. Catherine’s curriculum is college-preparatory and aligned to rigorous standards above and beyond the Common Core.  Our theology program aligns to the standards of the United States Council of Catholic Bishops.  Within each curricular area, teachers work to incorporate the art of rhetoric, critical thinking and real-world application.  Students are taught using lecture, project-based learning, and technology.  During the 2014-2015 school year we are working to expand our course offerings and will have a revised Programs of Study posted in February.
