School Notes:

  • OVERVIEW OF CURRICULUM

    The Corpus Christi curriculum adheres to the education standards set by the Catholic Diocese of Arlington.  

    Grades K to 3

    The literature and phonics-based curriculum encourages a love for reading while incorporating skills needed to read, write, and express orally.  Language arts, math, and science are taught across all grades.  Religion is integrated into classes. Spanish is taught from Kindergarten to Grade 8. First graders attend an orientation program to learn about the campus and the academic requirements for the student.  Second graders develop their language arts through written and oral book reports.  Third graders concentrate on reading/language concepts, vocabulary, and critical thinking skills.  All grades include social studies classes.  The themes taught are:  history, cultural awareness, holidays, basic geography (1st grade focus), studying North American communities (2nd grade focus) and learning the 50 states/capitals as well as federal government structure (3rd grade focus). 

    Grades 4 to 5

    Academics are based on the principle that reading involves critical thinking, vocabulary, and interpretation.  Therefore, students begin to have longer-term projects.  Fourth and fifth graders utilize a team-teaching approach for the core subjects of:  math, science, English and social studies.  Math skills include probability and statistics, fractions, algebraic concepts, and decimals.  Fourth graders study colonial history and end the year with  a Colonial Day celebration.  Fifth graders study world geography and cultures.

    Grades 6 to 8

    Students in grades six through eight learn in a departmentalized setting taught by teachers who specialize in particular subject areas.  Advanced classes in math include pre-algebra, algebra, literature, science, and geometry.  Literature involves a strong emphasis on vocabulary.  In seventh and eighth grade, students learn research skills. Middle School science includes labs and science fair projects.  Social studies and history are taught by integrating the lessons into various class projects.   The eighth graders complete an Ellis Island simulation activity where each student portrays an immigrant trying to enter the United States.  By participating in these projects, students apply what is learned in the classroom to various situations found in life in general.
