The Elementary School Program at Quincy Catholic Academy offers a rigorous academic curriculum which includes and goes beyond the MA state standards and focuses on creating a mindset for success at an early age. Teachers design engaging lessons to meet the unique strengths and challenges of each student in all subject areas. The curriculum of the Elementary Program is designed to build upon skills learned each year and introduce more advanced skills at each grade level. We teach students to think creatively and critically and to take ownership of their own learning.
At every grade level, students receive:
- Active learning in a supportive and challenging environment
- Emphasis on reading, writing, and critical thinking skills
- Catholic values embedded daily
- Systematic, real-life approach to the study and understanding of mathematics
- Exposure to the wonders of the world through an adventurous approach to social studies and science
- The exciting experience of shifting from the “learning to read” to “reading to learn”
The experienced and dedicated staff is committed to building a foundation for intellectual growth, faith formation, personal development, and life-long learning. Incorporating state-of-the-art technology, the Academy provides an education for the 21st century.

The Elementary Years (Grades 1-5)
What To Expect: The Elementary School years, between grades 1-5, are the “golden years”. Students are inquisitive, enthusiastic and imaginative. QCA’s teachers seize these qualities to the fullest by creating an environment of excitement for learning – building on conceptual skills, tapping into relevant connections and creating cooperative learning activities.
There is an atmosphere of respect between teachers and students as well as students and their peers. The result is a kind of educational magic that permeates throughout the classrooms!
