Academics & Programs
Holy Spirit Catholic School strives to educate the whole child. It is important to teach to the intellectual, emotional, physical, and spiritual development of the child. Holy Spirit Catholic School uses the curriculum guidelines of the Department of Catholic Schools of the Archdiocese of San Antonio along with the Texas State Standards as its main source for determining the course of instruction. To accomplish these goals, teachers will use textbooks, workbooks, group projects, and other outside resources as necessary to assure mastery of these objectives. Special attention is given to developing age and skill appropriate teaching practices to meet the needs of all students. All students receive instruction in the core courses of religion, math, English, literature, science and social studies as prescribed by the TCCED Bell to Bell schedule. Students also receive instruction in the specialty subjects of music, art, physical education, technology, and Spanish. Information on Archdiocesan Curriculum can be found on the Archdiocesan website at www.sacatholicschools.org.
