New for the 2019-2020 academic year, the daily schedule for students in Grades 7-12 will include a 90-minute community block, inclusive of lunch, that will allow for off-campus experiences and co-curricular pursuits with minimum disruption to our traditional four-block schedule. An array of rotating schedules will ensure that every class either backs up to or follows the community block once per week, on average. This affords a substantial amount of time for our teachers to re-imagine how they can integrate new experiences into their teaching. And it will provide dedicated time for broader and deeper engagement with our robust co-curricular program.

Benefits of Community Block

  • Students have an enhanced voice in their educational path.
  • Students select how they maximize their areas of focus on a daily basis.
  • Co-curriculars take place during the day, allowing for increased student participation and opportunities for developing student leadership.
  • Community Block and the spiraling class schedule provide a window for all classes to take students off campus for field trips or other experiential learning opportunities.
  • Schedule invites opportunities for guest speakers, assemblies and Masses without disruption to time in classroom.
