Spanish

The Spanish program is designed to build a foundation that prepares students for high school. Meanwhile, the unique opportunity to learn a second language broadens horizons and expands understanding of other cultures.

ArtArt in 1st

Each teacher, with parent volunteers, conducts art projects throughout the year. Each class is supported by a parent volunteer working as an art docent under a county-run program designed to expose all children to various types of art appreciation and skills.

All grades are active members of the school garden.  Students participate by tending to seasonal and perennial crops, composting, vermi-composting, design, and general maintenance.  Students run a produce cart stocked with items harvested from the school garden and neighboring farms. Students also participate in a variety of activities through the Sierra Harvest organization including Harvest of the Month, Guest Chef Tasting, and visiting local farms.

Mt. St. Mary Academy also offers programs in athletics, choir, and technology. Information on these programs can be found in the Student Life section.
