Middle School is a time of change and growth for our students; therefore, we’ve designed an academic program that challenges their maturing minds and broadens their perspective on the world.
Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Grade
Fifth, sixth and seventh grade students receive accelerated instruction in core subjects. Language arts classes incorporate every genre, accompanied by vocabulary, grammar lessons, and literature-related writing assignments. Students explore earth, life and physical science concepts, through hands-on investigation and everyday application. Mathematic objectives take students through geometric constructions and problems; algebraic expressions, equations, and structure; probability and statistics; graphing equations and inequalities; analyzing square roots; the Pythagorean Theorem; and trigonometric functions. The social studies curriculum incorporates geography, civics, economics, and international current events. World, U.S. and Louisiana history courses are offered to 5th, 6th and 7th grades. Religion classes follow the Archdiocesan curriculum and include the study of sacramental life, Hebrew scripture and the New Testament. Qualified 7th grade students have the opportunity to participate in language arts and mathematics honors programs. Classes in French, physical education, computer, art and music meet twice per week. Our Middle School 1:1 iPad program utilizes technology to increase productivity and engagement, enhance collaboration, and enrich possibilities for learning and creative expression. Our curriculum is tailor-made for middle school girls and encompasses student-led conferences, an advisory program, skill building in leadership, self-advocacy and collaboration.
