1st Grade

Come and see why 1st grade at CTK is so amazing! Kids in small learning groups get individual attention. Gatherings at the “sacred space” focus on prayer and worship. Celebrations, processions and unique activities reinforce key doctrines and encourage following Jesus as a disciple. Foundational scope of salvation history prepares your child for sacramental prep in second grade.

Preparation for First Reconciliation and First Eucharist

3rd Grade

Parents: take children to Confession and Mass. Liturgy focus, prep class Mass: music, readings, help serve, help the sacristan. Faith and Life Series for Grade 3: our Life with Jesus.

4th Grade

Old Testament points to Jesus, scripture, Mass, Church, Mary, reverencing name of Jesus. Missions and missionaries in the Church.

5th Grade

The goal of the 5th grade is for students to experience a personal encounter with Christ as they explore the foundational doctrines of our Faith as proclaimed in the Nicene Creed. They begin with what it means to believe, get better acquainted with the Holy Trinity and deepen their familiarity with Jesus Christ, incarnate Son of God, delve into the Paschal Mystery and much more.

6th Grade

The goal of the 6th grade is for students to experience a personal encounter with Christ as they explore a deeper understanding of the Mass and the Commandments. The year begins with the Father’s desire that we partake of his Divine Nature, followed by a Bible study on John 6. Other lessons look at the Mass as Sacred Banquet, Sacrifice, Memorial, Liturgy, and the Eucharist as the source and summit of our Faith. The second half of the year focuses on conscience formation with an in depth study of the Commandments.
