Low Student to Teacher Ratio

Our full day Kindergarten boasts a full time teacher, full time aide and part time aide for instruction of core academic subjects. Our Pre-K and TK classrooms have both a full-time teacher and a full-time aide, as well as a smaller class size (15 students). Grades 1 - 5 have part-time aides. All grades are consistently split into two groups for teaching of core academics to provide greater one-to-one teaching opportunities. Our student to staff ratio is 15:1.

Fully Accredited

We are accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). We consistently receive a full 6 year accredition each review period, the longest term awarded.
