Religious Studies

Each year, students must successfully complete a Religious Studies course, a class service project, individual service hours and the required class retreat. Retreats are a day spent off-campus at various retreat centers in the Syracuse Area. Each retreat has a theme that is developed through activities at each retreat.

A student who has not successfully completed any religion course must attend a summer session for that course.
The theme for the course for each grade level is as follows:
7th Grade: the seven Sacraments
8th Grade: breaks down the Ten Commandments and students evaluate their consciences
9th Grade: the books of the Old Testament
10th Grade: the books of the New Testament
11th Grade: the concept of Social Justice
12th Grade: Christian Philosophy and World Religions
