Curricular Philosophy

Stella Maris Academy Curriculum is a Liberal Arts model of education rooted in the sacramental and intellectual traditions of the Catholic faith.  

The curriculum will provide teachers, parents, and students with the tools to navigate the modern world with a defined order that celebrates the truth, goodness, and beauty of our faith. The Catholic Liberal Arts Education will respect and honor the wisdom of great thinkers of the past, the saints, and the fruits of the Holy Spirit in our continuum of experiences and content. The curriculum will unify faith and reason, forming students who discern their unique, God-given plan (vocation) as the best version of themselves- being confident, intelligent, free, fully alive, faithful young adults.
