Junior High Unit   

The Junior High Unit is comprised of sixth, seventh, and eighth grades. The goal in junior high is to work in cooperation with parents to assist students as they develop spiritually, academically, physically, socially, and morally. This goal is achieved through departmentalization where each teacher is responsible for a particular academic discipline of the curriculum.  The study and demonstration of competency of the United States and Illinois Constitutions are also a requirement for eighth grade graduation.

Religion is more than an academic subject; it is a way of life. The religion program in junior high has two goals: to contribute to the spiritual growth of each teen and to invite each one into responsible participation in the life and work of the faith community. The faith life of a junior high student is developed through grade level retreats, participation in unit liturgies and social justice projects.

Classes in physical education, music, art survey, and computer compliment the core curriculum and contribute to the development and well-being of the student.

The ultimate goal of the junior high program is to send students to high school with a solid moral foundation, strong academics, and an aptitude for life long learning.
