St. Catharine’s kindergarten program is a loving, welcoming introduction to your child’s formal education.

Our full-day program balances education, enrichment, and play in a nurturing environment to give our youngest learners the best possible opportunity to grow.

  • Small class sizes and a kindergarten aide ensure every student receives regular one-on-one attention.
  • A structured daily schedule familiarizes students with the school routine.
  • Learning occurs naturally through art projects, centers, reading, songs and movement, small group activities, and guided play.
  • An integrated Smart Board and dedicated technology time cater to today’s learners.
  • Fifth grade buddies provide mentorship and a link to our larger school family.
  • Countless special activities set the stage for an engaging educational experience.

Our kindergarten curriculum is fully accredited by the Ohio Catholic Accrediting Association, and daily lesson plans are aligned with the Archdiocesan course of study and state standards.


Full Day Program

We offer full-day kindergarten programs. We also have teachers who specialize in teaching remedial and advanced reading and math techniques. Whether a child is struggling or advanced, each student can receive the extra support needed to further their educational experience.


Kindergarten Extras

Beyond reading, writing, and arithmetic, your child will have fun at St. Catharine School! Although emphasis is placed on developing reading and math skills, all kindergartners have access to a well-equipped science lab and receive quality instruction in computer technology, art, music, physical education, and library. Within weekly lessons, educational games and activities are created for a wide range of abilities and readiness. The program encourages social development and teaches communication skills.

What’s more, we have a cheerful and inviting hallway especially for grades K-2, where your child will feel welcome, safe, and special. Your child and your family will love being a part of the St. Catharine community!
