St. Louis offers a well rounded academic curriculum that incorporates today’s technology into the classroom. A daily classroom schedule at St. Louis focuses on the core curriculum courses of religion, language arts, math, science, and social studies. Students also receive weekly instruction in Spanish, physical education, computer, music and art.

A strong foundation in early education is the basis for learning. Our pre-school focuses on making learning exciting and fun for our students. Our approach to learning in these years incorporates music, songs, dramatic play, and many hands-on manipulatives into mathematics. The language arts approach is a balanced literacy method of thematic whole language and phonetics. The Christ Our Life series will be utilized as our religious introduction to our faith. Little Amigos and MusicTime, as well as Gigglebytes for our four year olds, will round out the curriculum.

Our seventh and eighth grade students participate in a rotating modified block schedule that is designed to prepare the students for success in a college-preparatory high school program. Students are academically challenged with advanced placement opportunities in math and language arts.

The seventh grade curriculum includes Religion, Math/Pre-Algebra, Language Arts, American History, Life Science and Spanish. Students receive weekly instruction in Art, Music, Computer and Physical Education.

The eighth grade curriculum includes Religion, Pre-Algebra/Algebra, Language Arts, American History II, Physical Science, and Spanish. Students receive weekly instruction in Art, Music, Computer and Physical Education.

The Learning Lab and SOARing programs offer student enhancement and support for our students at both ends of the learning spectrum.
