St. Louis Catholic Academy provides formalized standards for instruction and learning without stifling or limiting the creativity and autonomy of classroom teachers.
The curriculum combines requirements and philosophy.  The SLCA instructional guide is a standards and benchmark curriculum.
These benchmarks and standards are culled from Missouri State Standards, the Nativity/Miguel Network benchmarks and the St. Louis Archdiocesan curriculum.
These benchmarks establish a dual responsibility for what teachers must teach and what students must learn.
Fundamental to this instructional process is the adoption of High Yield Instructional Strategies.
Teachers are expected to use these strategies frequently in their classroom instruction.
