Educational Method


The time-tested Catholic Montessori learning environment is a community where the dignity of each child is respected and is based on the belief that each child has their own path of growth. It is a place where children love to learn and grow into their full capacity as a unique child of God. This prepared environment aids the child in their great work of growth to become an independent learner, while they follow their own inner teacher, the Holy Spirit.

The Montessori classroom features didactic materials in language, math, sensorial, practical life, science, geography, art, and music, and were developed through research and observation of how children learn.

Catechesis of the Good Shepherd

The atrium of the Catechesis of the Good Shepherd is a specially prepared environment in which the furnishings are scaled to size of the child. In this space children and adults live together a religious experience which facilitates participation in the wider community of the family, the church and other social spheres. 

The atrium is a place of prayer, in which work and study spontaneously become meditation, contemplation and prayer. The atrium is a place in which the only Teacher is Christ; both children and adults place themselves in a listening stance before his Word and seek to penetrate the mystery of the liturgical celebration.
