St. Cecilia’s curriculum begins with the Louisiana Department of Education’s Grade Level Standards and ACT’s College and Career Readiness Standards to guide our students in rigorous, purposeful learning across subjects and grade levels.
The Wonders program is the driving force behind our early reading/language program. Novel unit studies with paired texts and authentic literature selections and genre studies extend through Junior High. Accelerated Reader (AR) offers personalized assessment and support, helping students improve their reading skills and foster a love for reading. It not only enhances students' comprehension but also empowers parents to actively participate in their child's reading journey. Daily Grammar Practice (DGP), writing, research, and grammar and mechanics are important components that complete our ELA program across grade levels.
Our systematic mathematic and science programs begin providing cross-curricular opportunities for application in Pre-K. Freckle Math’s adaptive learning system assesses each student's math skills and provides personalized instruction to fill any knowledge gaps and challenge advanced learners at their appropriate level. Freckle helps our students develop strong mathematical skills, build confidence, and achieve academic excellence in this critical subject area. Hands-on STREAM Lab experiences reinforce and enrich lessons across the subjects of science, technology, religion, engineering, arts, and mathematics, building students’ critical thinking, creativity, and collaboration skills at all levels.
Project-Based Learning (PBL) is a dynamic approach that offers numerous benefits for students at St. Cecilia. By engaging in hands-on projects across subject areas and grade levels, students actively explore real-world problems, fostering critical thinking, collaboration, and creativity. PBL cultivates a deeper understanding of subject matter, promotes problem-solving skills, and nurtures a sense of social responsibility in our students, aligning with our commitment to holistic education.
