Curriculum

Greenwich Catholic School provides students with a lifelong intellectual and spiritual foundation through a rigorous and innovative curriculum focused on faith, critical thinking, responsibility and service. A Greenwich Catholic education incorporates the hallmarks of a traditional Catholic education and pairs it with contemporary learning. Our program focuses on educating the whole child and prepares each GCS student to enter High School and the world as a well-rounded global citizen. Greenwich Catholic School educates children from age three through grade 8. Each child is nurtured, valued and encouraged to work to their full potential.

The experience of the students at Greenwich Catholic School is one of vast opportunities academically, socially and spiritually. We support the continuous improvement of student achievement and our curriculum was designed not only to meet, but to exceed state and national standards. Teachers and administrators designed this proprietary curriculum under the guidance of national experts in Curriculum Mapping, a process of organizing and planning what is happening in our classrooms at specific points during the school year. Socially, we offer many extracurricular activities, including sports and clubs. There are programs after school that include choices such as drama, writing, arts and crafts, photography, Zumba and karate. GCS students grow spiritually through their religion lessons, frequent liturgical celebrations (including First Friday masses), virtues of the month, community service and Prayer Buddies.

Our curriculum at GCS is enhanced by the use of the daily use of technology in each classroom. Students in Pre K through Grade 8 use Smart Boards regularly and also receive weekly Computer Education. Each child has access to and learns to use desktop and laptop computers, as well as iPads. The technology curriculum at GCS includes coding, keyboarding, digital citizenship, proper use of the internet for communication and research, and gives students the opportunity to learn many software programs, such as Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, and apply it to their school work.  Teachers enhance their daily instruction with programs such as the Google suite, flip classroom, webquests, Skype lessons and more.

Our beautiful, 38-acre campus boasts numerous amenities to enhance our students’ learning experience including an indoor swimming pool, 4 tennis courts, playing fields, and a working garden. Greenwich Catholic School is a testament to a strong commitment to faith and the indispensable value of Catholic Education.
The curriculum guidelines,developed through the Office of Education,shall serve as the foundation for curriculum development. Curriculum mapping continues throughout the Diocese annually.
