The emphasis of the 3rd-5th grade curriculum is educating the whole child. While offering an excellent academic program in core subjects, Religion, Math, English, Social Studies, and Science, St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic School also emphasizes art, music, drama, physical education, technology, and foreign language.
At this age, teachers move toward cooperative learning activities including group projects where students work together to solve problems and apply new concepts. Curriculum is enhanced with additional outside educational resources. A dedicated Computer technology lab, additional computers in the classrooms, as well as one-to one devices in the classroom for specific assignments becomes the launch pad for developing 21st century research skills for continues academic growth.
At the Lower School they learn to read but as our students move to the Upper School they read to learn. Our intermediary program provides our students opportunities to shine in a safe and nurturing environment.
