The curriculum and texts are approved by the Archdiocese with Religion as the central course in our curriculum. We follow Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts (ELA)
and Mathematics. We follow the time allotment set by the Department of Catholic Schools; and participate in the evaluation of academic achievement (STAR) as well as religious knowledge and practice (ACRE) annually. We are also part of a network of schools that enhance our curriculum with a STREAM (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts, Math) focus. Spanish is taught to all students Grades TK-8. Curriculum offerings include:
Religion • Mathematics • Fine Arts/Theater Arts • Reading/ELA • Science • Social Studies • Music • Spanish (Gr 1-8) • Writing • Physical Education

Students in grades TK-8 receive weekly instruction in music and art. Students in all grades participate in music and art activities that are central to monthly school themes and special activities and traditions (i.e. The Christmas Program, Grandparent’s Day, The Arts Festival, etc.). Students in all grades participate in the school activities. Students in grades 4-8 are enrolled in visual art and students in grades 6-8 are enrolled in theater arts each trimester.
Physical Education (P.E.) is a vital link in the total education process. Exercise, running, motor and progressive skills are provided at all grade levels. Through instruction in various games, individual and team sports, students are made aware of good sportsmanship through active involvement w
ith their classmates outside of the classroom. A detailed summary of the Dress Code, standards for Boys and Girls, Grading Process and Weekly Schedule is sent home in the Family Envelope at the start of the school year.

The school library houses books, periodicals, and religious materials. Library time is incorporated into the classes’ schedules. The library is opened during recess and lunch one day per week. Grade level appropriate library skills are taught in the classroom. Students in grades 1-8 visit the school library on a weekly basis. Books are checked out for a period of one or two weeks. The library is staffed by a part-time librarian and by parent volunteers.​
St. Euphrasia School strives to serve children with varied learning needs so they may be successful in all aspects of school life. All educators in Archdiocesan schools follow “Directions
for the Inclusion Process in Catholic Schools: Support Team Education Plan Process (STEP) and Minor Adjustment Plan Process (MAP).” The STEP team is a school support team that includes the parents/guardians, the classroom and/or homeroom teacher, the school administrator and/or the STEP team coordinators, other school personnel, and the student, when appropriate. The goal of the team is to gather information and work together to support the student’s educational needs in the classroom. The STEP team reviews report cards, standardized test scores, cumulative records, work samples, discipline records, and other data. The team will use the data to create an individualized action plan to identify your child’s strengths and areas of concern, implement support strategies, identify responsible persons, and schedule timelines for progress.
This program is supervised by a teacher who assists students who may require extra support (or enrichment) to achieve grade level proficiency in core subjects (reading, math, language arts). Students are referred to the Learning Lab by their homeroom teacher, and parent permission is obtained for all students. Students are provided with 1:1 and small group instruction to help them build proficiency in grade level skills. Students who participate in the Learning Lab program are regularly monitored through the school’s STEP process.

St. Euphrasia School is a recognized C3 Ignite Archdiocese of LA School. We are part of a cohort of schools recognized for their participation and creation of a learning model that uses technology for the purpose of accelerated learning. Our school’s vision for technology is to be as seamless as possible for both teacher and student. We are seeking to fundamentally change how we use and apply digital learning strategies for daily learning and skill practice. We are reorganizing our curriculum to offer accelerated science and math for all students, TK-Gr. 8. We are shifting our practices to infuse our entire curriculum model with increased STREAM depth and complexity (organized into the following icons: language of the discipline, details, patterns, rules, trends, unanswered questions, ethics, big idea, over time, multiple perspectives, across disciplines). And, we seek to incorporate the depth and complexity principles listed into our religion program with an increased emphasis on the principles of social justice.
