Preparation for high school and beyond is our main academic focus in our middle school classrooms. Our teachers collaborate with the local Catholic High School to ensure our students are ready for the challenges of competitive college-prep high schools, both academically and socially.

Middle School Curriculum

Curriculum may be defined as “all the guided experiences of the child under the direction of the school.” It includes the content of courses of study and also embraces the development of the whole child. In keeping with our school philosophy and objectives, we enable the students of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School to grow in the knowledge and love of God and of themselves. Religious education is an intended part of the school day.  The faith formation of a student is an ongoing process, hence teaching about God and His world is incorporated into daily classroom activities as the opportunities arise. Our curriculum is designed with academic rigor, and sensitivity to the gifts of each of our students in order to meet the needs of all learners.

The curriculum of St. Anthony of Padua Catholic School follows the guidelines and objectives detailed in the graded courses of study for elementary schools, developed by the Archdiocese of Cincinnati and adapted by the Department of Education, Archdiocese of Las Vegas.
The core subjects taught include: Religion, English, Math, Reading, Science and Social Studies. Students also receive instructions in Art, Music, Physical Education and Computer Literacy.  In addition, our students attend weekly School Masses.
Extra-curricular activities include: Band, Altar Servers, Student Council, National Junior Honor Society, Geography Bee, Spelling Bee, Science Fair, Yearbook, Cheerleading,  and sports activities sponsored by the Catholic Schools' Sports League.
To compliment the value systems of the school and family, an Extended Day Care Program is also offered. Quality care with a nurturing staff in a planned environment provides a rich before/after school experience.
