Elementary School Curriculum

The curriculum includes all of the guided learning experiences of the student under the direction of the Diocese of Raleigh, The Franciscan School, and the classroom teacher. It includes the content of the course of studies, but it is not limited to it. The experiences of the student include participation in religious, intellectual, cultural, physical, social, and civic activities both in the classroom and, when possible, outside the school. The Franciscan School Faculty and Staff strive to create a value centered, holistic environment consistent with Catholic teaching, academic excellence, and high levels of achievement for the students. 

The Diocese of Raleigh Curriculum Guide is intended for use in all Catholic elementary schools in the Diocese of Raleigh. It is the framework for instruction that assists teachers in identifying and implementing the appropriate instructional methodology in Grades K through 8.
