Upper Elementary

In 4th and 5th grades, our academic focus is to establish a meaningful curriculum for our students and to prepare them for lifelong achievement. We strive to educate faith-filled leaders of tomorrow and build a solid foundation of learning and spiritual growth.

4th and 5th grades incorporate the team teaching approach allowing the students to change classes for Language Arts and Math. We feel this makes the transition into The Academy (grades 6-8) much easier. Teachers specialize in their particular subject matter and provide a variety of instructional strategies to better meet the needs of each individual student.

The curriculum that is followed meets the requirements of the Diocese of Birmingham as well as the Alabama State Course of Study. In addition to the required academic classes, we provide students with experiences in art, music, computer, Spanish, and physical education.

Our students learn about sharing the love of Christ by helping others in our community and our world. Throughout the year our classes participate in various projects that demonstrate our love for others.

“Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them; for to such belongs the kingdom of God.”
Luke 18:16
