The Curriculum That Makes Us A Blue Ribbon School

St. Cecelia Interparochial Catholic School provides a rigorous Blue Ribbon school academic curriculum for all students based on the Diocese of St. Petersburg Standards and Benchmarks and the Florida Standards. These standards are aligned with college and career readiness expectations: They are clear, understandable, and consistent. The standards include rigorous content and application of knowledge through higher-order thinking skills and have helped us become a Blue Ribbon school.
