Archdiocesan Curriculum Standards for the 21st Century
The Archdiocese of Hartford is committed to providing a rigorous academic curriculum based on the teachings of the Catholic Church, infused with Catholic social teaching, rooted in basic skills and coupled with innovative programs embedded in 21st century literacies that will prepare young people for college, career, and life. To that end, all curriculum standards reflect a continuum of learning from pre-kindergarten through to graduation in high school. All curriculum documents are in alignment with national standards, exceed the Common Core State Standards, and correspond to the high expectations set by the Office of Education, Evangelization and Catechesis.
We recognize the importance of teaching the whole child, of preserving traditions that make us strong with an eye on the future that ensures hope and success; we recognize that it is only through the fluency of information that students can think conceptually, and it is through a safe, nurturing environment that students realize and reach their full potential.
