The core curriculum for each student includes Religion, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science, and Social Studies. Students should expect instruction in these subjects daily. Co-curricular classes include Art, Music, Physical Education, Spanish, and Technology. Students in Grades 6-8 have one trimester of each co-curricular class and those classes meet daily. Eighth graders have an opportunity to earn high school credit in certain subject areas.

Our middle schoolers at Cardinal Stritch will each receive a Chromebook. These Chromebooks will be integrated into the classroom and students will be asked to communicate, collaborate, and use critical thinking skills to complete assignments using technology. Students will be taught how to use this technology safely and responsibly.
