Curriculum

Curriculum may be defined as “the totality of student experiences that occur in the educational process.” It includes the content of courses of study; it also embraces the development of the whole child. The school assists the child in the formation of Catholic character, beliefs, attitudes, and values not only in connection with subject matter areas, but also in each and every school experience.

Our curriculum follows the Diocese of San Diego Curriculum for Catholic Schools, which fully incorporates California Core Standards.
