Advent is a time of preparation. It is in this preparation that we patiently wait for the coming of the Christ child.
The Diocese of St. Petersburg has adapted the Common Core State Standards, and we are working to implement these standards here at St. Paul Catholic School. The National Catholic Education Association (NCEA) is working to help Catholic schools implement these standards while still maintaining a strong Catholic identity. The president of NCEA suggests that, "Catholic education, based on the message of Jesus that all people are made in the image and likeness of God, seeks to address the whole person, presenting an education for life—how to live one's life, remembering the transcendent purpose of our lives and the hope to return home to the God who loves us. Catholic education is bigger than the Common Core goals."
The US Conference of Catholic Bishops have written the following explanation of our Catholic schools participating in the Common Core Standards. More information can be found here.
