Along with an increase in physical stamina, attention span and memory, comes a growing need for independence and personal responsibility. Friendships take on a new dimension. Students question, explore and try on new roles which are fielded by an understanding and compassionate staff. Surrounding the students are qualified educators who have Christ as their partner in helping decide not just what is acceptable, but what is worthy of admiration in today’s world.

WHERE FAITH COMES TO LIFE
Weekly Mass is celebrated most Wednesday mornings at Immaculate Conception Church. Each class takes turns planning the liturgy and participating in different aspects of Mass, from reading, cantoring and choir, to servers and greeters. Other highlights of the year include the annual All Saints Day Mass and the Living Rosary.
All fifth graders are enrolled in Band for the first semester. After nine weeks of general music instruction and an assessment of musical aptitude, they are guided to the selection of a musical instruments. Students can opt out of Band at the end of the first semester, and then are given the opportunity to participate in a vocal music class.
