K-5 Curriculum

Saint Joseph School’s curriculum is based on the Diocese of Nashville high academic standards. Students engage in the core subjects of Religion, Math, Science, Literature, English and Social Studies. We also have a newly launched S.T.R.E.A.M. program (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering and Math) which includes robotics, coding and computer science.

 

Lower elementary follows the Orton-Gillingham curriculum in English.” The Orton-Gillingham approach is a multisensory phonics technique for remedial reading instruction developed in the early-20th century. It is practiced as a direct, explicit, cognitive, cumulative, and multi-sensory approach.”

The Math curriculum is based on Singapore Math. “The Singapore math method is focused on mastery, which is achieved through intentional sequencing of concepts. Some of the key features of the approach include the CPA (Concrete, Pictorial, Abstract) progression, number bonds, bar modeling, and mental math.Instead of pushing through rote memorization, students learn to think mathematically and rely on the depth of knowledge gained in previous lessons. An attitude that math is important and approachable is also essential. Students perform at a higher level when their potential for understanding and success is assumed.”

"We have been at Saint Joseph school now for 7 great years. We have three children in grades 5th, 3rd and 1st currently. The special classes including art and language have been great. Our kids are also involved in sports, drama & choir. The SaintJoseph School family is a great one to be involved with. Go Bulldogs!" - Steve, Parent
"We are so thankful for having made an academic home at St. Joseph School! The faculty and administration know they are growing future leaders, and they take it very seriously. It’s our sixth year at SJS, we have a 4th and 2nd grader. Their academic, artistic and spiritual growth, year over year, is apparent and greatly appreciated." - Sarah, Parent
"As a former student of Saint Joseph School, I could not imagine our children anywhere else. Our boys are loving it as much as we did. Not only are they being formed in their faith through prayer and service, they are also learning to be scholars and athletes with an appreciation of the fine arts. This is truly a family, a home away from home for us where we feel loved, supported and inspired." - Kathy, parent
