Holy Family offers a rigorous, differentiated curriculum that is aligned with the Illinois State Standards
Pre-K ~ Children begin their faith journey through the Sharing God’s Story program. Classic children’s literature will come alive in the Happily Ever After reading series, science explodes with Quirkles and children will dive into math through the Houghton Mifflin math program.
Kindergarten - 8th Grade
Religion~ Students learn about our Catholic Faith through stories, activities, Scripture, prayer, discussion and reflection. Second graders receive their First Reconciliation and First Communion, and 8th graders are Confirmed. Students attend and participate in Mass weekly and have opportunities throughout the year for Reconciliation.
Language Arts~ The language arts program includes reading, writing, speaking, listening, and the study of literature. Guided reading and novel studies are the foundation of our literacy instruction, along with the “Accelerated Reader” program.
Mathematics ~ Students acquire knowledge of mathematics and the ability to apply math skills to solve problems through the use of the textbook, extended activities and hands on experiences.
Science ~ Concrete hands-on experiences, written materials and visual aids are used to teach concepts of science in the physical and natural world. Students identify problems, formulate and test hypotheses and evaluate experimental results. Junior High students also participate in Regional and State Science Fairs.
Social Studies ~ Students will develop an awareness of communities, cultures, citizenship, geography, social justice, and U.S. history, through project activities, research and the textbook.
Our state of the art computer lab and mobile laptops are utilized for the integration of technology.
