Curriculum Design

Our academic curriculum at St. Basil School is determined by standards set by the Diocese of Sacramento in conjunction with California State California Common Core State Standards (CCSS).

Students in grades K-8 receive daily instruction in the following core subjects:

  • Religion
  • Math
  • Social Studies
  • Science
  • ELA (Reading Vocabulary, Grammar, Phonics, Writing, Spelling, Literature)

All curriculum is supplemented with internet based applications.


In St. Basil's religion classes, students learn how to know, love, and serve God. Our curriculum is based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, and covers a variety of topics including Scripture, Sacraments, Church History, Faith in Action, and the Liturgical Year. During the school year, our second graders receive their First Reconciliation and First Communion, and our eighth graders are Confirmed. The school also participates in service projects during the seasons of Advent and Lent. Finally, our students, faculty, and staff attend Mass every Thursday morning at 8:30am.

Physical Education

We believe in nurturing the whole child—mind, body, and spirit. Our Physical Education program goes beyond just fitness; it's about instilling lifelong habits of health, teamwork, and sportsmanship, all within the framework of our Catholic values. Through engaging activities, skill-building exercises, and collaborative games, students develop not only their physical abilities but also their character and resilience. Physical Education is offered for Kindergarten-8th grade.


🎵 Harmonizing Hearts and Minds in Music Class 🎶

Music isn't just notes on a page—it's a language that speaks to the soul. In our music classes, students discover the joy of melody, rhythm, and harmony, all while deepening their connection to their faith. From singing hymns of praise to exploring diverse musical genres, students cultivate their talents and develop a lifelong appreciation for the beauty of music. Music is offered for Kindergarten-8th grade.


In our vibrant art classes, creativity knows no bounds! Guided by our talented art teacher, students explore various mediums, unleash their imaginations, and express their unique perspectives—all while celebrating the beauty of God's creation. Our art curriculum is infused with Catholic values, inspiring students to reflect on their faith and use their talents to glorify God. Art is offered for 1st- 8th grade.


STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education is more than just a curriculum—it's a journey of discovery guided by faith. In our classrooms, students explore the wonders of the natural world, harness the power of technology, and unlock the secrets of innovation—all while deepening their understanding of God's creation. Through hands-on experiments, collaborative projects, and real-world applications, we inspire students to become curious thinkers, problem solvers, and stewards of the world around them. Stem is offered to Kindergarten- 8th grade.
