The Second Grade academic program focuses on basic skills, critical thinking and problem solving based on the New York State Common Core Standards.

The Language Arts Program incorporates a basic reading program, good literature, and skill instruction in written and oral expression. Reading instruction is designed to produce life-long readers. Students analyze fiction and nonfiction texts which in turn enables skill building in speaking, writing and critical thinking.

The Mathematics Program emphasizes instruction in mathematical concepts, computation and problem solving. The use of manipulatives across the program helps the students understand concepts.

The Social Studies Program explores kinds of communities including economics, geography, citizenship and holidays.

In the Science/Health Program, the students investigate topics from the earth, health, physical and life sciences through observation and hands on activities.

The Religious Studies Program focuses on exploring and deepening the student’s relationship with Christ, His Church, and His message. The students are taught doctrine, experience liturgy and the sacraments, discuss values and deepen their prayer life.
