Home About Us Curriculum

Curriculum

A St. Christopher education reflects both academic excellence and a Catholic identity. St. Christopher School is committed to the whole child, including academic preparation, self-discipline, moral values, and spiritual growth. Our teachers blend creativity, discipline, experience and innovation to help children grow into happy and productive individuals.

 

Our emphasis is on the basics of education utilizing structured, proven methods supported by the latest in educational technology. On a typical day, our students might practice their math tables with a timed test or participate in a spelling bee, then later take a virtual field trip to ancient Greece or play an online learning game! Our curriculum challenges students in reading, writing, oral expression, mathematics, social studies and science.

 

Weekly classes in computer science, music, art, library, Spanish and physical education provide additional avenues to discover the joys of reading, research, knowledge and physical well-being.

 

We believe in the discipline and benefits of homework. Grades 1-6 follow guidelines for assignments Monday through Thursday, with additional projects throughout the year.
