The school adheres to the guidelines offered by the Archdiocesan Office of Catholic Education (OCE).
This program encompasses all aspects of student formation; namely, spiritual, intellectual, social, physical and personal.
Students engage in active learning, reasoning and problem solving. The primary grades focus on developing basic skills by using visuals, manipulatives and other concrete multi-sensory stimuli.

In the upper grades teachers encourage mastery of learning concepts.
Strengthening students' mastery of basic skills at all grade levels is a fundamental goal of the faculty.
