The curriculum embodies basic skills and their subsequent development in the content areas. Since curriculum addresses the education of the whole child, all opportunities for learning are considered viable tools for growing in the light of Gospel values. Taking into account the needs of the child, the school implements group instruction and cooperative learning. Through participation in student-centered activities and with the implementation of new technology, all teachers strive to enhance the learning process by applying Gardner’s “Theory of Multiple Intelligences.”
