All teachers sign an Oath of Fidelity to the Magisterium of the Catholic Church and all classes are imbued with the truth and beauty of our Faith. Religion teachers receive catechist certification or participate in ongoing professional development through the Archdiocese of Louisville to obtain the necessary requirements to teach the Faith.
We have adopted the Cardinal Newman Society Curriculum Standards and are members of both the Institute for Catholic Liberal Education (the national body for Catholic Classical Education) and the Classical Latin School Association.
Safe Environment Training through the Archdiocese of Louisville is required of all adults who are on campus on a daily or regular basis.
As a school, we pray the rosary daily and celebrate Mass 3 days/week. We celebrate First Fridays with all day Eucharistic Adoration, Confession, and Mass. Mass is offered on Holy Days of Obligation. Catholic Male students in 4th grade and up are eligible to serve at Mass.
We have a school wide monthly virtues program, based on the Virtues in Action program of the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia in Nashville, whereby students receive recognition and encouragement for acting virtuously.
We constantly seek out ways to serve within the school and the community at large.
Every homeroom has a patron saint that the students come to know through study of their lives and a prayer of that saint recited at the end of each day!
Students pray the beautiful centuries old prayer of the Angelus at lunch time and the table blessing in Latin.
We study Scriptures and incorporate prayer into all of our initiatives, and every day, the students are reminded that Christ is the reason for this school!

While the children do receive preparation for sacraments in their Religion classes, parents should check with their parish Director of Religious Education to ensure they will recognize the sacramental teachings as preparation for receiving the sacrament. Some parishes require all sacramental students to attend religious education classes at the church. Other parishes, if preparation is accepted, may require students and parents to attend retreats or informational meetings.
