Our Unit System sets St. Athanasius apart from other academic programs. It provides strong teacher-student connections and imbues the learning process with a sense of community.
We organize grades 1 through 8 into four units, with two grades per unit:
- Unit A (grades 1 and 2)
- Unit B (grades 3 and 4)
- Unit C (grades 4 and 5)
- Unit D (grades 7 and 8)
Each grade is taught separately — within a unit — with a core team of teachers working in collaboration with the same group of students over a two-year period. Together they focus on reading, language arts, math, science, social studies and religion. Specialists lead art, music, physical education, technology, French and Spanish classes.
