Diocesan Statement on the Common Core Standards

"The Diocese of Manchester will not formally adopt nor require its schools to develop their curriculum solely on the basis of the Common Core State Standards (CCSS). Our principals and teachers, however, are expected to be cognizant of all such standards and their impact, especially for two reasons:

  1. the content of many textbooks now takes the CCSS into account and

  2. many students in our grammar schools go on to public high schools and we have an obligation to make sure they are prepared for that transition.

Our principals and teachers are intent on providing the best education they can for our students and thus they draw on a variety of resources and programs in order to fashion a curriculum that best serves our students in the context of our schools and their mission in the Catholic Church."

Parents are greatly encouraged to stay informed and involved in school life and activities. On the drop-down menu above are upcoming events on the calendar, and documents for important aspects of the school.
