St. Florian provides each student with a Catholic education in all areas. The faculty and school families join the parish staff and fellow parishioners to form a living Catholic faith community.

St. Florian is fully certified by the State of Illinois and the Archdiocese of Chicago providing a Roman Catholic environment focused on educating the whole child mind, body, and soul.

Curriculum

Preschool/Kindergarten: Our preschool/Kindergarten program operates full day from 7:45 a.m.-2:35 p.m. Students work on learning developmental skills, alphabet, math, reading, religion, art, and science through interactive and creative teaching styles. The advantage of multi-age grouping is that students have the opportunity to work with children younger or older than themselves, while still mixing socially with children their own age.

Across our elementary grades, (first-fourth and in Kindergarten) students are exposed to many interesting learning opportunities. In classrooms, SuperKids is taught. SuperKids is a Reading program based on the Common Core educational standards. Throughout the program, students have the opportunity to read, share, write about, and wholly exhibit their Reading comprehension and fluency. Our Reading series is supplemented with students reading and creating small projects based on picture books and chapter books (grade level appropriate,) as well as an online Reading program known as RazzKids.

Students in grades PK-5 also focus on Mathematics from the EnvisionMath series. Teachers incorporate Mathletics (an online Mathematics hub) to coincide with the topics they learn in class across all grade levels. The 7th and 8th grade Mathematics curriculum centers on the teaching of PreAlgebra and Algebra.

Middle School Language Arts is based on teaching Common Core standards. Our English teacher works with technology to incorporate learning online, writing, and comprehension. One of the ways our Language Arts teacher makes sure students are reaching the Common Core is by working on Units that coincide with chapter books. Another was is using Interactive Storyboards that students can create from online sources and that exemplify what the students have learned on a particular topic.

This year St. Florian School received an energy grant known as ESP: Energizing Student Potential. Students will be learning about energy, it's best uses, which will eventually lead to an energy fair in April. Additionally, in their knowledge acquisition, students have the opportunity to work on a myriad of hands-on activities, not only because of the energy unit.

Social Studies throughout the grade levels varies. We have many different opportunities for students to learn about history and geography. Our Middle School History teacher uses technology to create research based projects.
