The St. Vincent de Paul School curriculum is developed through continual reflection of our mission statement and use of School-wide Student Learning Expectations, the Archdiocesan guidelines, state standards and professional experience of the faculty. St. Vincent’s curriculum provides for the harmonious development of the student’s spiritual, moral, physical, emotional and intellectual growth.
St. Vincent's provides a program which includes classes in the following subjects: Religion, Reading, Integrated Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, Science, Music, Physical Education, Library Skills and Computer Education. Students at all grade levels receive art instruction from volunteer Art Docent instructors. Extra-curricular opportunities include student crew, yearbook, drama, speech team, select choir, and band.
St. Vincent's is a multi-graded elementary school and our schedule is unique. Homerooms for students in grades three through eight are composed of two grade levels. Students in third and fourth grade have a homeroom-based teacher for reading and language arts. These primary students travel in grade level grouping in the afternoon for math, science, and religion. Intermediate students in grades five through eight travel in two-grade level groupings in the for ELA, science, social studies, and religion. All intermediate students are in grade level math groupings. Because of our schedule, the intermediate curriculum is on a two-year cycle some subjects. Preschool, prekindergarten, kindergarten, first, and second grade are self-contained classes where the foundations of our programs are established.
More information on our curriculum and two-year cycle for grades 5-8 is included in our curriculum guide.
