Unit-based Learning

PUCS was founded on the belief that all of life is rooted in Christ the Redeemer who is the integrator of our lives. We inspire our students to see the world as a whole, emphasizing the natural connections between subjects.

The PUCS curriculum brings together content from multiple subjects into creative learning units. Each unit is organized around a social studies or science theme that provides framework for instruction in reading, writing, math, music, and art.

In the course of the school year, our K-5 students will immerse themselves in the study of five grade-specific units plus one all-school unit. Our Middle School students follow a three-year rotation through literary, social studies, and science areas that integrates content-connected arts and skills development.

Overall, our integrated curriculum promotes a deeper understanding and makes learning meaningful, relevant and fun. Click here to see the sequence of Elementary School Unit themes.
