                 As a member of the Diocese of Knoxville, Our Lady of Perpetual Help School adheres to a set of curriculum goals that are illuminated by the light of faith and grounded in the spiritual truths of sacred scripture and Catholic tradition. Through the integration of Catholic identity, spiritual formation, and moral/ethical behavior, our Catholic schools implement a  rigorous curriculum focused on skills essential for students to become socially responsible global citizens. There is great emphasis on classical disciplines, development of creativity, problem-solving, decision-making and appreciation of truth and beauty in all aesthetic and cultural forms. The framework for our curriculum is defined by the Diocese of Knoxville Grade Level Expectations,  the State of Tennessee Curriculum Standards, National Content Standards, and the Benchmarks for Academic Excellence propagated by the National Catholic Education Association. The Diocese follows a schedule for Curriculum Grade Level Standards and Expectations review and revision. Link to Standards
