We believe that a reasonable amount of homework is of great educational value to all students. Therefore, our teachers assign homework on a regular basis to: enrich school experiences, provide practice, review, develop good study habits, teach responsibility, and foster originality. Assignments are not always written. Study, memory work and independent reading are frequently assigned.


We follow the Diocese of Pittsburgh's recommended time schedule for home study.

  • Primary (levels K - 2) 10 to 30 minutes

  • Intermediate (levels 3-5) 40 - 60 minutes

  • Middle School (levels 6 - 8) 70 - 90 minutes


If a child is routinely spending more time on daily homework assignments than the recommended time schedule, please contact your child's teacher.
