Academics in Western New York Catholic Schools

Excellence in Academics Infused with Gospel Values

Our core curriculum is perfectly aligned to meet and exceed New York State standards, assuring a premier academic experience for your child. Recently, the ELA and Math curricula were updated to reflect the NYS Common Core Learning Standards. Each grade level's content, essential questions, student skills, resources and types of assessments used to evaluate the students' skills are clearly articulated in curriculum maps. Gospel values are infused across all areas. Curriculum mapping builds the framework for best practices in teaching and learning. We encourage you to review the diocesan core curriculum in detail.

Archbishop Walsh High School/STCS is a candidate school* for the Middle Years Programme. This school is pursuing authorization as an IB World School.

*Only schools authorized by the IB Organization can offer any of its three academic programmes: the Primary Years Programme (PYP), the Middle Years Programme (MYP), or the Diploma Programme and in addition the IB Career-related CP. Candidate status gives no guarantee that authorization will be granted.
