Time Commitment: The classes for grades 1-8 meet on Sunday mornings from 9:15 -10:15, the kindergarten class meets during 10:30 mass, and the 9th and 10th grade classes meet Sunday evenings from 4:30-6:45 about 2 times a month. The program starts late Sept to end of April/early May. We follow the UMass schedule as well as the Amherst school schedule.
Resources: Grades K-5 are using the Finding God series by Loyola Press, grades 6 and 7 do Bible Study and grades 8 – 11 use a curriculum aligned with the Catholic Youth Bible.
Training and Support: We host teacher training every fall and try to have 2 teachers in each classroom.
