Curriculum

At St. Paul Catholic School, there are many classroom opportunities for the students to participate in hands-on lessons.  This is led by a compassionate faculty and staff that nurtures each student to become life-long learners.


Academics

St. Paul Catholic School encourages each student to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically, and spiritually.  Our advanced academic program aligns itself with Illinois State Standards and includes the following: Art, Language Arts, Math, Pre-Algebra and Algebra, Physical Education, Reading, Religion, Science, Social Studies, Technology, Vocal and Instrumental Music.  St. Paul uses the latest technology that includes Chromebooks, SmartBoards, iPads, and Kindles to enhance learning.  Students in grades 4th - 8th are supplied with a Chromebook to access online textbooks and to complete classroom assignments.  Grades 2nd and 3rd share a portable Chromebook lab while the Preschool through First grade classrooms have iPad centers for the students.  St. Paul Catholic School is committed to preparing students for life in the 21st century.

Our Learning Center is available to students at regularly scheduled times or on an “as-needed” basis. The teacher keeps in close contact with classroom teachers, as well as parents, concerning the needs and progress of the students.


Faith

In addition to offering a fine curriculum, the students’ daily activities are centered around the Catholic Faith. The students worship together on Fridays by attending an All-School Mass. Students plan and take part in the Liturgy.
