Curriculum Overview

St. Helen School strives to educate the whole person in an atmosphere of academic excellence. Our curriculum follows the curriculum guidelines of the Archdiocese of Miami and is in compliance with the state education requirements. It is designed to prepare students to succeed and prepare them for any rigorous middle and high school academic programs by providing a firm foundation in fundamental knowledge and skills; encouraging intellectual exposure and depth of study; and inspiring creativity and critical analysis. Solid as it is, our curriculum is in a continuous state of evolution as we aim to equip each new incoming class with the tools, confidence, abilities demanded by our increasingly complex world, and with a small class number, teachers are able to assist students to attend their goals on a one-on-one basis.

The core curriculum consists of

  • Language arts
  • Math
  • Science
  • Social studies
  • Religion
  • Reading

The emphasis on essential knowledge in our core curriculum is time-tested and well-proven to best prepare students for the road ahead, regardless of the academic path they may choose.

Additional courses in the following subjects provide students with a well-rounded knowledge.

  • Spanish
  • art
  • music
  • technology
  • physical education
  • STREAM

These courses are provided so that students may broaden their academic exposure, explore particular interests, and challenge their special talents. In addition to the six core classes required in each grade level, students will be required to take these additional courses as prescribed by their particular grade level curriculum.

Feast of the Presentation of the Lord

Reading: Mal 3:1-4

Thus says the Lord GOD:
Lo, I am sending my messenger
to prepare the way before me;
And suddenly they will come to the temple
the LORD whom you seek,
And the messenger of the covenant whom you desire.
Yes, he is coming, says the LORD of hosts.
But who will endure the day of his coming?
And who can stand when he appears?
For he is like the refiner’s fire,
or like the fuller’s lye.
He will sit refining and purifying silver,
and he will purify the sons of Levi,
Refining them like gold or silver
that they may offer due sacrifice to the LORD.
Then the sacrifice of Judah and Jerusalem
will please the LORD,
as in the days of old, as in years gone by.
