Religion

Middle School Religion

Students will spend time examining their Catholic beliefs and traditions, memorizing prayers and mass responses, and how they are called to live (in terms of morality and social justice). It is our goal that the children grow spiritually and develop a closer relationship with God and each other.

Students will receive instruction in social skills and emotion management, by means of lessons in the program of Second Step: Student Success through Prevention.
