School Notes:

As L.A.'s premier interdependent Catholic girls' school, Ramona Convent teaches each student to think about ideas, people, the world, and herself as integral parts of a much -larger whole.  As we have for 123 years, Ramona kindles each girl's intellect, college readiness, and poise through critical reading, thinking, writing, and problem solving, and accompanies each young woman on her self-internalized journey toward full development.  We warmly invite you to visit and meet Ramona for yourself!
