The Mother of Sorrows School curriculum is aligned to the standards established by the Pennsylvania Department of Education, as well as the Diocese of Greensburg curriculum guides. Children receive core subjects of religion, math, language arts, science, and social studies. The Language Arts Program consists of reading, grammar, writing, vocabulary, and spelling. The primary grades also receive phonics as part of their core subjects.
Our special classes have been designed to connect with our core curricular areas. We also offer Spanish, art, music, physical education, and computer technology to students in preschool through eighth grade.
Our students learn theory, history, rules, and processes of these classes in order to assist future learning in any area they desire to explore. Spanish is taught once a week for those in prekindergarten through third grade; twice a week for fourth and fifth grade; and four days a week for students in sixth through eighth grade (middle school).
Our goal is to allow students, who wish to do so, the opportunity to move into Spanish II when they enter high school. All of our special classes are designed to meet state standards and have a direct link to classroom learning.
