An AdvancED Accredited Elementary School

Academic Curriculum at St. MatthewSt. Matthew Catholic School, within the Mecklenburg Area Catholic School (MACS) System, follows the educational curriculum developed and supported by the Charlotte Diocese Education Office and North Carolina Standard Course of Study. With the structure and guidance of this curriculum, our teachers strive to meet the needs of each student, while challenging all students to fulfill their academic potential in a secure and nurturing environment.

At the heart of our curriculum is the study of our Catholic Faith. Because Religion is the very reason for our existence it would follow that a focal point of this information is the course of study offered in our Religion classes

All St. Matthew Catholic School students receive daily instruction in Religious Education, Mathematics, Science, Social Studies, English/Language Arts and Physical Education. In addition, we also offer Computer Lab, Art, Music, Spanish, Counseling Program, Media, Learning Support Program, Gifted & Talented Program (LEAP) and Instrumental Music Program (nominal fee). Each of these expanded programs is taught by specialized instructors.

St. Matthew Catholic School holds District Accreditation from AdvancED, the governing body of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS/CASI).
