Sierra Madre Academy was established in response to the Second Vatican Council's call for greater lay witness in contemporary society.
Teaching in accordance with the Magisterium of the Church, our mission is to form young men and women who, committed to live by Catholic principles, will transform and advance human culture.
We aim to accomplish this by offering a traditional learning environment that blends faith and reason in educating the whole child.
Man was created by God in His image and likeness and therefore is destined for Him who is infinite perfection.
In the spirit of the Divine Master, amidst a world of material possession, the mission of Sierra Madre Academy is to prepare the child for what he must be and for what he must do here on earth, in order to gain the sublime end for which he was created.
Our duty is to take great care in the Christian education of the youth.
