The school offers a well-rounded Catholic education, with academic and extracurricular program for students in Pre-K through 8th grade.
The school has received full accreditation from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
The quality of our academic program is reflected in the level of success of our students show in standardized tests and our student acceptance rates to elite local high schools.
The average scores of St. Cyril students in these tests consistently place them in the upper quartile of scores nationwide and our students often enter high school with multiple honors and academic scholarships.
In addition to our academics, our students benefit from a wide array of extra-curricular activities, sports, after-school enrichment, and an integrated technology program (iPads, SmartBoards, MacBook lab, MineCraftEdu).
In these activities, our students further develop their intellectual, artistic, athletic, leadership, and social skills.
These activities include opportunities to do Christian service and community outreach by helping less fortunate members of our society.
