Rigorous academic excellence and religious instruction is achieved through small class sizes, open communication and high expectations. Cooperation and understanding between home and school is crucial to the success of each child.
As part of the Archdiocese of Denver Catholic Schools we administer the STAR test (computer-adaptive tests designed to give educators accurate, reliable and valid data quickly). The STAR provides a comprehensive assessment of student progress three times in the school year in major content areas – Reading, Math and Literacy.
In addition to the STAR, we also give the ARK (Assessment of Religious Knowledge), which is given to students in grades 2 through 8. The purpose of the test is to see how students understand their Catholic faith and what they do to live it in their everyday life. The test is divided into content and attitudinal values. This format indicates to all that the teaching of religion to young people is a team process with school and home.
