Junior High (6-8)

The Cathedral of St. Raymond School Junior High (6-8) Program

Junior High is designed to prepare our students to move on to a successful high school learning experience.  In junior high (grades 6-8), classes are departmentalized. While students travel mostly as a homeroom, students move from teacher to teacher for each subject area. 

St. Raymond School uses the Diocese of Joliet Catholic Curricular Standards to develop a year-long scope and sequence.  St. Raymond School utilizes Lucy Calkins’ Reading and Writing Units of Study, Whole Class Novels, Illustrative Math, TCI Social Studies, Amplify Science, OSV’s Alive in Christ and Second Step Social Emotional Curriculum.

Highlights Of Our Junior High Program

  • Through our One-to-One Initiative, all junior high students purchase a Google Chromebook their sixth grade year through the school for use throughout the school day and at home.
  • Students utilize Google Classroom, a full suite of productivity tools which help students develop their organizational skills and collaborate with their teacher and other students.
  • Qualifying students in 8th grade spend the first two periods of the school day at Joliet Catholic Academy taking high school level algebra and biology giving them the opportunity to be pushed academically and gain the skills necessary to be successful in high school.
  • Each Friday, the junior high teachers announce a Junior High Student of the Week.  A student in sixth, seventh or eighth grade is chosen who demonstrates a strong work ethic and outstanding moral character.  This sets a tone in junior high on the importance of making the right decision and defining leadership as moral courage
