Our kindergarten program encourages the development of the mind, body and soul of young children. We believe every child is a precious gift from God. Our program facilitates interaction with other children and adults, in an atmosphere of Christian love and concern, which promotes the healthy development of each child. 


Our kindergarten curriculum, established by the State of Ohio and Diocese of Cleveland, will engage students in activities that encourage the continued development of cognitive language and math skills infused with science, including a special Astronomy night in September, language, art, music, physical education, and outdoor play. The integrated curriculum is based on how children learn best and will allow each child to make meaningful connections in their learning.   

In addition to the core curriculum, kindergarten students participate in co-curricular studies including Art, Music, Physical Education, STEM, Computer and Library classes, as well as have the opportunity to take part in some CYO sports and Spanish Club.   

We are preparing our kindergarteners to:
  • Continue to develop foundational cognitive skills by learning through experiences in: Math, Science, Language, Social Sciences, Religion, Art, Music, physical movement, play and field trips.
  • Grow their understanding of Christian values.
  • Integrate technology into their education experience.
  • Effectively communicate and socialize with their peers.
  • Successfully transition to first grade.


Our kindergarten program is full time, Monday – Friday; 8:00 AM – 2:50 PM.  The students' daily schedule includes lunch and recess. Weekly, kindergarteners attend our all school Mass. Students may also utilize Extended Day, our before and after care program if needed. Students must be 5 years old by August 1 to attend kindergarten.
