In Our Schools

Catholic schools in the Diocese of Syracuse use the Safe Environment education program, Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe to teach students personal safety skills through a series of developmentally appropriate lessons created for grades Pre-K through 6.  This program teaches students to distinguish between appropriate and inappropriate behaviors by peers, adults and family members and how to respond appropriately. Students learn to recognize and avoid potentially abusive and unsafe behaviors and situations. Overall, the program encourages children to treat others with kindness and respect – and to expect the same in return.

For Grades 7 - 12, our junior/senior high school faculty collaborate with professionals in their community who present on Safe Environment topics such as sexting, Internet safety, personal boundaries, and healthy relationships.
