Female Student in ClassThe Catholic Schools Curriculum

The curriculum in the Catholic Schools of the Diocese of Bridgeport supports the continuous improvement of student achievement and was designed not only to meet, but also to exceed state and national standards. It helps students reach their full potential not only now, but also in higher education and in their adult lives. Teachers and administrators designed this proprietary curriculum under the guidance of national experts in Curriculum Mapping, a process of organizing and planning what is happening in our classrooms at specific points during the school year. The maps are aligned with Gospel Values in every subject area so that students always learn in an atmosphere that includes Christ at its center.
