Primary Grades: K-2
Learning today. Leading tomorrow.
At St. John Vianney Catholic School, students learn their faith is an essential part of their daily lives. The religious education program at each grade level weaves the six tasks of catechist at developmentally appropriate levels. These six tasks are: knowledge of faith, liturgical education, moral formation, teaching to pray, education for community life and missionary initiatives. Through the study of each area the students examine the richness of their living faith and gain new insights about themselves.
Through their Catholic education, the students receive the moral foundation necessary to face the challenges and difficulties that life brings. The students will be prepared to make important decisions and to formulate an educated and faith-filled opinion on the controversial issues that they will face in the future.St. John Vianney School pursues academic excellence across the curriculum.
Our curriculum is based on Diocesan-approved standards and learning objectives which exceed both state and national performance norms. All resources and curriculum materials used in our school are aligned with the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools and are approved by the Diocese. SJVS supports a 50-50 approach to dual language in PreK4-Kindergarten. This goal is to be completed by the year 2024.
In addition, the school emphasizes the education and development of the whole child: moral and spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and emotional, and artistic. These experiences enrich the academic program and offer cross-curricular connections to the classroom when possible.
To align study with a STREAM program the curriculum is driven by problem-solving, discovery and exploratory learning. Technology is utilized to provide creative and innovative ways to solve problems and apply what has been learned. Each grade level completes a long-term research project embedded in their curricula to provide opportunities to collaborate, communicate and critically think throughout the curricula.
