Saint Mary Academy Curriculum
Saint Mary Academy follows the curriculum framework developed by the Archdiocese of Louisville curriculum office. This framework outlines the national standards being met, the content to be covered and the skills to be taught at each grade level kindergarten through eighth grade. The Archdiocese also makes recommendations regarding textbook selection based on this curriculum framework.
Each of the Archdiocese of Louisville’s Catholic School curriculum frameworks is created by teams of content-area teachers and is updated on an established cycle. These frameworks contain performance standards that represent a cohesive set of expectations for all students. These standards define the expected learning objectives as well as the ways students will demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the essential concepts and skills for each grade level in a content area.
