Located in Wakefield, Rhode Island, Monsignor Matthew F. Clarke School is a Catholic co-educational school with students enrolled from pre-kindergarten through grade 8. As a Diocesan regional school, MCS welcomes students from parishes throughout Southern Rhode Island, and offers bus transportation throughout the region for students in grades K-8. Students of all faiths are welcome to apply.
The Catholic tradition is alive and well at Monsignor Clarke School. We strive to provide an atmosphere that supports the whole child, and focuses on building confidence, capability, a healthy sense of self, and an awareness of and concern for others. Within the context of our faith, we teach our students how to learn, and more importantly, how to question and understand the world around them. Our educational programs place emphasis on the spiritual, intellectual, physical and aesthetic development of each student.
MCS students enjoy a wide range of academic, athletic, and social opportunities. Our LabLearner™ science lab, the first of its kind in New England, offers lab-based science to all of our students beginning in Pre-Kindergarten. Clubs, such as our student council and service club, strive to involve our students in organizing events, raising awareness, and helping others outside of our school. Our middle school students compete in a range of sports, including soccer, basketball, baseball, softball, cross country and track. Other opportunities include Girls on the Run™, school newspaper, drama, band, and karate. We have a very active PTO that supports many social events, raises funds to enrich our school, and provides parent volunteers for school-based projects. MCS offers before- and after-school child care to accommodate our families.
Monsignor Clarke School—Challenging the Mind, Nurturing the Spirit
The course of study of Monsignor Clarke School follows the guidelines of the Catholic Church, the Diocese of Providence, and the State of Rhode Island. Our educational goal is based on the Christian principle “to teach as Jesus did” – with love, concern, dedication, and understanding. It provides for a full range of academic, physical, spiritual and creative opportunities. The integrated curriculum is designed to challenge and broaden the knowledge of each child, to help develop their individual gifts and talents, and to help them recognize their own personal self-worth.
The religious education curriculum which includes the Circle of Grace and Family Life programs conforms to the guidelines of the Diocese of Providence. All students are to participate fully in the religious education programs both in the classroom and in all liturgical services in the school and church. Non-Catholic students are excused only from the reception of Holy Communion and the Sacrament of Reconciliation.
Curriculum maps for all grades and subjects are posted below here for your accessibility.
Individual student growth, group progress, and school programs are monitored by means of the Diocesan testing programs (ACRE and Terra Nova) and teacher prepared assessments and tests.
An essential part of the instructional program, homework serves to reinforce learning, clarify and review skills and material learned in class, and provide an opportunity for their individual growth through creative experience, in-depth study and supplementary reading. Homework will not be given as a means of discipline.
• Students need a quiet atmosphere for studying and support with good time management to be successful.
• Parents may supervise the doing of homework, but need to remember it is to be the child’s work.
• A reasonable amount of homework will be given. Please be aware that different students will take different amounts of time to complete their assignments.
• It is the responsibility of the teacher, student and parent to communicate with each other as to homework, tests, project due dates, etc. It is hoped that the student will become self-motivated, develop a sense of responsibility and use self-discipline to complete his/her assignments on time and to the best of his/her ability.
