• ## Sixth Grade Math Program

Saint Mary School has adopted the rigorous academic curriculum set forth by the Archdiocese of Hartford. In accordance with our mission, the Archdiocese of Hartford Curriculum reflects a continuum of learning from prekindergarten through high school graduation, and the standards are based on the teachings of the Catholic Church, infused with Catholic social teaching, rooted in basic skills, and immersed in technology and 21st century literacies. Furthermore, all curriculum documents are in alignment with national and state standards and exceed the Common Core State Standards. After a review, Saint Mary School has adopted Envision Mathematics.
