Called to be More

High School Students

More than just a name. The Theology of the Body is more than a treatise on chastity. Because God became man, Christ showed us both our divine purpose and capacity to love through His own life and words. Called to be More brings this authentic teaching alive for high school teens.

What high school students crave

This curriculum goes far beyond the “dos” and “do nots.” It explores:

  • The dignity of each human person
  • The universal vocation to love
  • The gift-of-self and the meaning of our existence

Students who are given the “whys” behind Church teaching are much more likely to embrace their relationship with Christ and His Church. They will also be equipped to articulate their faith to family, friends, co-workers, classmates and others who challenge their beliefs.

Our students are made for more

This curriculum seeks to “Go beyond the heart of the tragedy experienced by modern man”

Our teens face cultural despair unparalleled in history

  • 10-20% experience major depression
  • 15% of girls exhibit an eating disorder
  • 28% have experienced bullying at school
  • 90% of young men report using pornography
  • 30-40% use illegal drugs
  • 16% seriously considered suicide

We need not accept this as the new status quo. Theology of the Body provides a better way that is offered to everyone.

This curriculum teaches us all that from the beginning of humanity:

  • We are created as a gift
  • As a gift and help, God gives us an essential purpose to live for others
  • We are called to authentically love God and one another
  • When we align with God and our purpose, we are destined for happiness

“It is Jesus whom you seek when you dream of happiness”

Homework, Quizzes, Tests, Grades. This curriculum isn’t about checking boxes. It is designed to create a lasting effect in the faith life of our students. St. John Paul II teaches, “The Word of God has conversion as its aim”

More than your average TOB curriculum

The hope espoused in Theology of the Body should be an everyday reality.  A small smattering of classes is insufficient to counter the predominant influences our young people encounter daily. “Called to Be More” has been designed to weave seamlessly into the high school classroom.

7-10 lessons per semester

These lessons mesh into common high school theology classes including:

  • Introduction to Scripture
  • Christology
  • The Paschal Mystery
  • Ecclesiology
  • Sacraments
  • Morality
  • New Testament and Old Testament Studies
  • Catholic Social Teaching
  • Vocation

This material mirrors the USCCB’s Doctrinal Elements of a Curriculum Framework. In addition, the semesters released thus far have received an Imprimatur. Those details, along with the curriculum acknowledgements can be reviewed by clicking this link.
