As an accredited Los Angeles Catholic school of the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA), St. Turibius Catholic School is committed to educating our students in accordance with approved standards, both California State Standards and Common Core State Standards. Our teachers prepare lessons that are rich and engaging to all learners. Students benefit from our small class-size environment and the individual attention yields successful results.
We are a private elementary school that welcomes all students who are in grades TK-8 and practice Catholic religious and moral values, as well as accommodates students who speak Spanish and English.
Parents play a crucial part in our STEM school academic program and communication is a cornerstone of our philosophy. For this reason, parents are kept abreast with their children’s educational progress and teachers are readily available for comments and concerns.
Our rigorous academic curriculum includes:
Faith formation is a big part of our Catholic elementary school environment. Our students and staff have experiences with Christ daily through community prayer, Eucharistic celebrations, Reconciliation services, service projects, and Religion classes. One of our central beliefs in forming a child is guiding them to develop their own individual relationship with God that will stay with them the rest of their lives. We also pride ourselves in walking with our students on their journey through Sacramental preparation like First Holy Communion, Reconciliation, and Baptism. We are even a resource for our families that may need assistance and guidance in Sacramental preparation for other members of their families too.
