Algebra is the basis for all future study of math and science. It is critical that students have a solid understanding of Algebra. Our goal is that all students take algebra in 8th grade, however not all students are ready for this challenge. 

The algebra textbook is McDougal Littell Algebra 1 and is aligned with the Common Core State Standards, as well as Bellarmine Preparatory requirements. 


The 7th grade uses the McDougal Littell Pre-Algebra curriculum. This is an eighth grade level curriculum which focuses on preparing students for Algebra in 8th grade.
