The 3K, 4K, and 5K programs at Holy Apostles School form the foundation for a lifetime of learning and academic success. Our curriculum is a carefully constructed three-year progression designed to fully prepare students for their elementary years and beyond.
This development includes instruction and growth in the following core areas: Literacy, Religion, Math, Science, Personal Development, Technology, Social Studies
In addition to the core curriculum, students also participate in the following enrichment programs with certified teachers beginning in 4K:
Project Lead the Way—Our science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) program is now integrated into our 4K-8th grade curriculum! 4K students will learn about Life Science by exploring characteristics of living and nonliving things, examining habitats, which will help them develop an understanding of what living things need in order to survive. They use the engineering design process to sketch, build, and test an animal’s shelter, then reflect on their design.
Library (3K & 4K) – Students visit the library weekly to enjoy story time and check out books.
Art and Music – 4K classes take regular opportunities to develop individual expression through art, crafts, song, and dance, as children learn to appreciate the beauty of God’s world around us.
Spanish Language – Spanish instruction introduces our young students to foreign language and the larger world.
Physical Activity – Children attend Physical Education class, as well as have daily opportunities to participate in structured and unstructured activities in indoor and outdoor settings
Field Trips & In-House Guests – There are multiple opportunities throughout the year to expand on learning themes beyond the classroom. In-house guests/outside field trips have included: NB Fire and Police Departments, nature centers, nursing homes, First Stage, and more.
Buddy Program – Students love their older buddies! 4K students are mentored by 5th grade students for Mass, reading, and other learning activities. 3K students are mentored by their 2nd grade buddies.
