Curriculum

Our Catholic faith is the foundation upon which every aspect of our curriculum is built. The teachings of Jesus are at the heart of our curriculum.It is our faith in Him that guides our efforts to meet the academic, physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of our children while meeting and exceeding all requirements of the State of Alabama and the Office of Catholic Schools.

Core academic subjects, as well as computer education, physical education, and fine arts form the foundation of our curriculum. Spanish is taught to grades K-8. Students grades K4-8 attend regular computer, art, music, and library classes. Requirements are based on national standards or objectives, standards established by the State of Alabama in its Course of Study, and learner expectations developed by the Office of Catholic Schools.  Our curriculum provides students with a challenging program that is accredited by AdvanceED.

A school counseling program is an integral part of the total educational process. Our counselor enhances the learning environment by providing many services and meets the developmental and educational needs of our students through classroom guidance.
Our Resource program provides assistance to children with special learning needs. An elementary and a junior high resource teacher work closely with classroom teachers to provide the optimum learning experience for all students.

Our students score well above average on the Iowa Test of Basic Skills (ITBS). Additionally, fifty-seven percent of the current eighth grade class were recognized as Duke Scholars. They scored in the ninety-fifth percentile or higher in Math and Reading.

Our graduates excel in high school and beyond as well. In the past eleven years six Corpus Christi graduates have been the Valedictorian of their graduating classes at McGill-Toolen Catholic High School. Three of our alumni have served as Valedictorians and Salutatorians at Davidson and Mary Montgomery High Schools.
