What is the School's Curriculum?
The Curriculum is a standards-based curriculum of the Archdiocese of Omaha. The curriculum in each area is written and revised each summer by Archdiocese of Omaha teachers. Many Norfolk Catholic teachers have spent time helping to write and revise our curriculum.
Curriculum guides offer clear expectations for education in the following subject areas: Religion, Language Arts, Science, Social Studies, Math, World Languages, and Technology.
Teachers use the curriculum as the basis for planning their lessons for the year. Use of the curriculum will assist students in attaining the standards for which they are accountable.
