The Mother of Sorrows School curriculum is aligned with 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 program offers a variety of advanced and enrichment opportunities, such as: advanced math, which includes algebra and math competitions; advanced language, which includes foreign languages, English festival competitions, reading specialists, and full Learning Support on staff; science and technology laboratories, science competitions, robotics, and robotics competitions; music, choir, band, drama club and performances, and art competitions; as well as many other additional clubs and athletic teams.
Our intention is to form each student into a contributing member of society, and to develop a heart that cares to the point of making a difference for the greater good. We offer a great environment where students can practice and continue to grow in their faith, with Jesus Christ as the center of the life of our school. We will help our students to develop their minds, their bodies, and their souls for today, tomorrow and forever.
It is important to note: Standards are not curriculum. Academic standards are general statements that describe objectives for student learning, and the curriculum is designed to meet these expressed standards. With the curriculum maps in place, schools are continually guided to uphold our commitment to high academic excellence while incorporating Catholic teachings and values.
