"Faith Formation and Academic Excellence since 1955"

Curriculum

It has been widely recognized that Catholic schools are to be communities of faith, in which the Christian message, the experience of community, worship, and social concern are integrated in the total experience of students, their parents, and members of the faculty. At St. Catherine Labouré we are engaged in catechesis efforts, which help individuals and communities acquire and deepen their Christian faith and identity through instruction and formation of conscience. The efforts of both parents and teachers are directed toward the formation of persons in Christ Jesus.

In addition to religious education, St. Catherine Labouré School offers the following courses: Language Arts (reading/literature, phonics in primary grades, grammar, composition, spelling, vocabulary, handwriting), Math (Honors Algebra in seventh/eighth grades), Social Studies, Science, Art, Music, Physical Education, Spanish, Technology, Study Skills, and Electives (grades sixth, seventh, eighth).
