Our Curriculum Standards

Archdiocesan Curriculum Standards for the 21st Century

The Archdiocese of Hartford is committed to providing a rigorous academic curriculum based on the teachings of the Catholic Church and infused with elements of Catholic Social Teaching.  Rooted in basic skills and coupled with innovative programs embedded in 21st century literacies, our curriculum prepares young people for college, career, and life. To that end, all curriculum standards reflect a continuum of learning from pre-kindergarten through to graduation in high school. All curriculum documents are in alignment with national standards, exceed the Common Core State Standards, and correspond to the high expectations set by the Office of Catholic Schools.

We recognize the importance of teaching the whole child, of preserving traditions that make us strong and with an eye on the future that ensures hope and success.  We recognize that it is only through the fluency of information that students can think conceptually, and it is through a safe, nurturing environment that students realize and reach their full potential.
