    Please be advised that the Bishop Moore Catholic campus is currently closed.

    We are in the process of assessing the grounds and all the buildings. The Administration will make a decision as to the re-opening of campus, with a goal of opening on Monday. As in all cases, the safety of our students and staff is our first priority.

    Please continue to monitor your email and our social media accounts for any updates regarding the school and campus re-opening.

    On the feast day of the Holy Archangels, we pray that you and your families are safe after the storm. Raphael our healer, Gabriel our messenger, and Michael our defender, please pray for us and watch over us.

    BMC families,

    Hurricane Ian UPDATE.

    No school on Wednesday, September 28, Thursday, September 29, and Friday, September 30.

    Due to the latest path the storm is predicted to make, the Bishop Moore Catholic campus is closed to faculty, students, parents, and visitors during this time. Because the campus is closed, there will be no practices, workouts, games, school activities, or non-Bishop Moore-sanctioned events held September 28-30.

    In addition, the SAT test scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 1 has also been canceled. College Board will notify students directly regarding the options students have in regards to taking the test or receiving a refund.

    A reminder that the re-opening of Bishop Moore Catholic may not follow Orange County Public Schools. After a thorough assessment of our property, Administration will determine when re-opening is possible.

    Any updates will be posted on our website, as well as Schoology and our social media outlets. Information will also be shared with local radio and television stations, and an email blast will be sent.

    We continue to pray for the safety of those in the path of Hurricane Ian. May God protect us, help us, and comfort us during this storm.

Academics

Bishop Moore Catholic employs a college-preparatory system that consists of state-required courses for graduation, theological studies, and a wide variety of electives.  Our curriculum is designed to foster academic and spiritual growth and to promote students to become leaders in their worlds of influence.   

 

Curriculum

The curriculum of BMC is designed for student success at the post-secondary level. This curriculum exceeds the Florida Department of Education's requirements and employs interdisciplinary techniques that help students integrate what they are learning into their daily lives.   

2022-2023 Curriculum Guide

Core Classes

Placement in core classes is based on student entrance exams, previous transcripts, and teacher recommendations. As part of our graduation requirements, students must take core classes along with religion classes.  

Electives

Students at BMC are expected to take electives as part of their graduation requirements. Electives offered include fine arts, performing arts, physical education, technology, the sciences, world languages, and publications.  

AP Courses

Qualified students may seek to participate in AP classes at BMC. By enrolling in one of the 25 AP courses offered and fulfilling the requirements of the Moore Scholar, students may graduate with an honor's diploma. BMC consistently outperforms both the state of Florida and the nation for AP pass rates.

See the Curriculum Guide for a complete listing of AP courses and the requirements for enrollment.  

STEM

For the 2021-2022 school year, BMC has added course pathways to its Curriculum Guide. These pathways were developed for students who wish to focus on a particular field of study. Some of these pathways fall under the STEM umbrella. The STEM curriculum, which is based on the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines, including Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, is an interdisciplinary and applied approach to teaching. Rather than teach the four disciplines as separate and discrete subjects, STEM integrates them into a cohesive learning paradigm based on real-world applications.

Technology

Technology is infused into the curriculum at BMC. Student textbooks are completely digital. Technology is integrated into student learning, from research to student productivity, to assessments.   

The Diocese of Orlando adheres to the National Standards and Benchmarks for Effective Catholic Elementary and Secondary Schools through which we are accredited (link: The Standards (catholicschoolstandards.org).  The Diocese follows the Florida state curriculum standards for all core content areas along with these uniquely Catholic standards. For a full review of the Florida Standards for Social Studies, you may go to Next Generation Sunshine State Standards Social Studies 2021 (fldoe.org)   

Integrated throughout all content instruction and explicitly taught as a core content area are the teachings of the Catholic Faith, and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Critical Race Theory is not included in any of those documents and is not part of the instructional standards taught in our schools.

At Bishop Moore Catholic, we endeavor to see every student succeed at every step of their high school journey and beyond.
