Religious Education
 

The Purpose of the Religious Education (RE) program is to provide a spiritual, moral, and intellectual foundation on which our young people can build their own faith.
 
We implement this, first, through our curriculum. It includes a study of Unitarianism, Universalism, and religions from around the world including Judeo-Christian traditions. It also includes study and development of personal values. More detail about the curriculum is in the RE Prospectus.

Secondly, we welcome diversity and gear our lessons to the varied needs and abilities of our students. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, our teacher focus on the students and strengthening their sense of belonging and self-worth.
