Our Catholic schools offer a rigorous curriculum that prepares each child for success in college and beyond. Instructional standards are defined for each grade level, indicating what students need to know by the time they leave that grade. Standards in non-religion subjects are based upon the Florida State Standards and adapted to our unique Catholic setting.
The Archdiocese has developed specific standards for Religion, which support the teaching of religion as well as the integration of our Catholic faith into non-religion subjects.
Students in grades 3-8 participate in the Terra Nova NEXT annual assessment, which provides achievement, growth, and predictive data for each child. High school students take the ACT and pre-ACT Assessments.
