Grade 6 is a pre-requisite for entering the Confirmation preparation program. Preparation for Confirmation takes place in grades 7 and 8. Students entering Grade 7 must have had formal religious instruction in Grade 6, otherwise they will be placed in Grade 6 instead of Grade 7. During the two-year preparation program for the Sacrament of Confirmation, students are to attend classes regularly with as little absence as possible if they wish to be confirmed in Grade 8.
