Catholic schools in the Diocese of Charleston provide meaningful, engaging learning experiences and faith formation through relevant and rigorous curriculum. All curriculum developed in the diocese is based on competitive standards and current curricular research; it draws on the expertise of our teachers and administrators and gives are teachers the flexibility to adapt the delivery of instruction based on the needs of the learners in the classroom.



Teachers and school administrators from across the state come together on an annual basis to evaluate, update, and restructure the rigorous standards for one subject each year.  These standards are based upon the concepts and skills needed by our students to demonstrate mastery in each grade level so that they will be prepared for college, career, and life.

Through the curriculum development process, the National Catholic Standards and Benchmarks for Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools are used to ensure our curriculum is infused with our faith and focuses on the mission of Catholic Schools.
