We continue the Catholic tradition with our spiritual and academic
goals. We have weekly Mass and Rosary with the students. We
remember our traditions with the May crowning, the Feast of St.
Francis, and children?s Christmas pageant. Academically, there is a
great infusion of culture; a focus on reading, writing, and math;
over 70 computers and a balance of enrichment activities for
student success. Our sports program promotes health and well-being.
Our teaching staff is made up entirely of volunteers. The teaching
mission involves not only preparation for in class tasks, but also
requires a significant community involvement and school operations
component. Our volunteers do not need to have education degrees but
must have a BS/BA degree. Volunteers must submit for a NM teaching
internship license upon arrival. If you stay beyond one year, you
must enter a teacher certification program and take the NM teacher
assessments/test. Volunteers are provided community housing;
breakfast and lunch on school days; a monthly $300 stipend;
medical, dental, and life insurance; and we have worked with
AmeriCorps providing the $4,700 Education Awards. The service
commitment is 1 August to 31 May.
