The Religious Education program at St. Charles is provided for children of our parish who attend public schools. Classes are held for 3 year olds through the 8th grade. It includes preparation for the sacraments of Reconciliation, First Eucharist, and Confirmation. We average 650 children in our classes, which are taught by parishioner volunteers. There are ordinarily about 66 classes conducted by approximately 100 volunteers. The program Coordinator is Mrs. Patricia Hafner.
A Catholic education provides children with academic excellence enhanced with traditional Christian values. Catholic school teachers have the unique opportunity to mold every aspect of a child’s growth and development. Foremost in this development is the spiritual – educators teach the message of Jesus. Through prayer, religious instruction, liturgies, and daily interaction, students become rooted in faith.
Hallmarks of Catholic schools include high academic standards, self discipline, safety, a sense of community and belonging. Teachers and staff model respect for all and an acceptance of each child’s talents, abilities, and personal challenges. Educators create a safe, loving environment that encourages students believe in their capabilities and to work toward their potential.
A variety of learning strategies are used to connect with the child’s framework of understanding. A strong core curriculum based on the NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards is complemented with enrichment programs. Technology, drama, music, world language and athletic programs add to the diversity of a child’s experiences and prepare the individual for an ever-changing world in which thinking is not only a habit, but a way of life.
Catholic schools are Middle States accredited. Through this accreditation, schools are recognized in their ongoing commitment to constantly seek new ways to better serve their students.
Parents are recognized as the primary educators of their children and they collaborate with teachers and administrators as partners in education. The schools are sensitive to the needs of working families and provide before and after school care, full-day kindergarten, and pre-school settings at many locations.
Consider a Catholic education as a viable option to invest in your child’s future.
