ST. ALPHONSUS CURRICULUM DIFFERENCE

  • CATHOLIC: The word “catholic” literally means universal or whole. Christ is the center and fulcrum of our mission, and we believe our education forms the whole child, regardless of religion, culture, or background. A Catholic worldview permeates the entire curriculum, with a vision to develop virtuous citizens of this world and the world to come.
  • CONTENT-RICH: In order to be creative and think critically, one must have a foundation of knowledge to build on year after year. Shared knowledge creates literate readers, writers, and speakers capable of effective participation and mutual understanding in wider society. Rich content awakens curiosity and joy of learning.
  • COHERENT: Learning is sequential and designed for cross-curricular connections. A coherent curriculum avoids unnecessary repetition and fragmentation, allowing students to deepen their knowledge grade by grade. Teachers, for instance, can connect a student’s prior learning in elementary historical studies to literature and visual arts in middle school.

OUR MISSION 
St. Alphonsus Parish School is dedicated to the formation of the whole child through academic excellence in a welcoming, faith-filled community based on Catholic traditions and values. Founded in 1907, our school currently serves 190 students in Preschool through 8th grade.

OUR VISION 
We aspire to teach as Jesus taught, encouraging each student to reach their God-given potential as grace-filled servant leaders.
