High School Year 1
The Revelation of Christ in Scripture
Students will gain knowledge and appreciation of Sacred Scripture from the Old Testament to the New Covenant in Christ, as well as the early Church. Includes a special focus on the Gospels where students will meet Jesus Christ and develop a deeper Faith in Him.
Students will be led to deeply understand the life and teachings of Jesus Christ, the living Word of God. They'll learn who He is and what he calls each of them to be.
High School Year 2
This course introduces students to the Blessed Trinity in and through the fullness of God’s revelation of Himself: Jesus Christ. They will study the Incarnation, the union of Christ’s two natures, Jesus as the exemplar of humanity, as well as the unique role of Mary, the mother of God.
This course prepares students to overcome the challenges of Faith, and leads them to a more profound understanding of what it means to believe.
