Academics

St. Louis School follows the Course of Study developed by the Archdiocese of Baltimore.  The Course of Study is predicated upon content standards promulgated by national organizations of experts in various disciplines and is woven within the Archdiocesan standards.  From this perspective, St. Louis School educates students in reading, English, writing, mathematics, science, social studies, Spanish, computers, physical education, health, fine arts, and library skills.  Religious instruction centers on providing the student with opportunities to experience God’s love through prayer, scripture, sacraments, and love of neighbor.  In addition, the family life program is offered to students in kindergarten through eighth grade, and the students in second grade prepare to celebrate First Reconciliation and First Eucharist.
