Education and Youth development
The Immaculate Conception Parish prides itself in having excellent educational opportunities for our Parishioners as well as parishioners from the surrounding parishes in Hunterdon County.
The Parish Religious Education Program (PREP) is an educational program for those students in grades K-8 who attend public or non-religious private schools, and desire to receive a Catholic Education that is required to understand the Sacraments of Initiation of the Catholic Church. We offer a variety of programs allowing for some flexibility in how your child is educated, and hope that you find that one of our programs suits your needs. Registration for new families begins each year in April and classes are filled on a first come first served basis. No registrations will be accepted after October 1st for the current year.
Immaculate Conception School exists as a gift to God’s children, to prepare them to live a life with Jesus the Good Shepherd as their teacher and friend. Inspired by the Holy Spirit, and through the intercession of Mary, the school seeks to foster in each student spiritual growth, academic excellence and moral integrity. The curriculum includes Religion, Language Arts, Mathematics, Science and Social Studies. Special subjects include Art, Music, Physical Education, Spanish and Media, which includes Computer Science and Library.
Our K – 8 programs at Immaculate Conception School, with 430 registered students, was recently awarded the National Blue
Ribbon Award for academic excellence. Our 3 and 4 year old programs provide an opportunity to enrich our Catholic Faith introduced at Baptism, by providing a setting for prayer, learning, and interaction with other children.
The curriculum is differentiated, integrated and child centered. Instructional emphasis is on individual progress. Student progress is assessed regularly and through this assessment student goals and needs are determined.

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) is the process by which adults become members of the Roman Catholic Church. The program provides religious education and spiritual growth for non-Catholics interested in becoming Catholic and for Catholics who have not received all of the Sacraments of Initiation (Baptism, Confirmation and Eucharist).
