Students in Kindergarten can expect an academically challenging curriculum combined with an environment that fosters friendship, learning, and personal growth. Students will be challenged to work independently and communicate orally and effectively. They will build upon the foundational skills learned in Transitional Kindergarten and grow as great readers, writers, mathematicians, scientists, and historians. Students will work in independent and collaborative ways through rotating centers to learn the skills and strategies they require for reading and math. Throughout the year, students learn about communities and how they can enforce real life change, discover other cultures with penpals in India, participate in engaging, hands-on science experiments, and embrace Catholic leadership through prayer.
