Curriculum

St. Patrick School follows the curriculum framework developed by the Archdiocese of Louisville curriculum office. This framework outlines the national standards being met, the content to be covered and the skills to be taught at each grade level kindergarten through eighth grade. The Archdiocese also makes recommendations regarding textbook selection based on this curriculum framework. A copy is available at St. Patrick School as well as at the Archdiocese of Louisville curriculum office.
