St. Vincent's is a
multi-graded elementary school and our schedule is unique.
Homerooms for students in grades two through eight are composed
of two grade levels. Students in these classes have a
homeroom-based teacher for reading and language arts.
Intermediate students then travel in two-grade level groupings
in the afternoon for science, social studies, and religion;
primary students travel in grade level groupings in the
afternoon for science, social studies, and religion Because of
our schedule, the intermediate curriculum is on a two-year cycle
for some subjects. All students are in grade level groupings for
math. Kindergarten and first grade are self-contained classes
where the foundations of our programs are established.

our curriculum and two-year cycle for grades 5-8 is included in
