Curriculum

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 TerraNova3 annual assessment, which provides achievement, growth, and predictive growth data for each child. High school students take the ACT and pre-ACT assessments.

Office of Catholic Schools

The Office of Catholic Schools (OCS) is dedicated to providing leadership, oversight, and support of the Catholic schools of the Archdiocese. In achieving its mission, the OCS works closely with other offices and departments of the Archdiocese, Catholic and non-Catholic university partners, and other partners to strengthen the mission, quality, and vitality of Catholic education.
