Our curriculum is based on the formation of the Catholic faith within an environment of academic excellence.

Our Catholic elementary schools educate the whole child — spiritually and intellectually — within a diverse, advanced and rigorous selection of course offerings and programming. Our curriculum is designed to meet and exceed the standards established under state law.

Curriculum design incorporates individual growth, team learning, hands-on activities and projects, cooperative presentations, as well as delivery of facts through lecture and guided reading.

In addition to meeting all of the Pennsylvania Department of Education requirements, our curriculum integrates Gospel values. This advanced curriculum has resulted in our students surpassing the national norms on our standardized tests.

Each year that a child is educated within the Catholic schools of the Diocese of Greensburg their performance on these measures increases.​
