Intermediate Program: Building New Skills
Hands-On Learning Brings Lessons To Life
Our intermediate program, for students in third through fifth grades, is designed to continue building on the fundamentals taught in earlier grades while also introducing new areas and expanding their knowledge of technology, social studies and the Catholic faith.
As part of our religious education, we focus on teaching the seven sacraments as well as learning more about the saints.
Here are the other areas we teach:
Math And Reading
Our math and reading programs continue with the Houghton-Mifflin curriculum series, emphasizing the interactive features that help assess each student’s understanding of the subject matter.
Technology becomes an increasingly important part of each student’s learning process. In order to incorporate more technology into each school day, they visit the computer lab or use Chromebooks often for assessments on Think Central.
Using the Lab Learner curriculum, each student brings their science lessons to life using hands-on instruction and lab experiments.
Each student continues to expand their knowledge of their immediate community as well as Maryland and United States history.
Music, Art, Spanish And More
We focus on creating well-rounded students with Spanish, art, music, computer, library and physical education classes every week.
