In Seventh and Eighth Grade, our students are exposed to a variety of learning styles as they prepare to receive the final Sacrament of Initiation, Confirmation. It is a recognized part of the catechetical process that teen-agers, with their need to test boundaries and experiment with life situations, need experiential learning. We also want our Church’s values to be part of the reality that these students study and evaluate.
Therefore, our 7th/8th Grade programs are one continuous process of learning, experiencing service, sharing talks about faith with believers of all ages and stages of faith and attending a series of retreats. We hope that as our students engage in this process, they will come to truly understand the value and meaning of their faith on this part of their life’s journey. Since it is a two-year program, students must begin at the 7th grade level.
