Elementary (K - 5)
Our Elementary program is a faith based Catholic curriculum designed to foster the basic and sacramental needs of children in lower elementary grades. Our curriculums include the Our Sunday Visitor "Allelu!" and Alive in Christ, by Our Sunday Visitor, for grades 1-5. Please see below for a brief overview by grade level.
