St. Helena Catholic School has consistantly received the highest level of certification by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and by the Western Catholic Education Association (WCEA).
Because we believe in the guided growth and nurturing of the "whole child", St. Helena Catholic School provides enrichment educational programs in environmental science, the fine arts, and performing arts as well as academic achievement emphasis.
St. Helena Catholic School is a faith based community of family and friends.
Students learn and grow together within the classroom, Parish and community to become active Christians, life long learners, leaders and responsible citizens.
Students have an opportunity to develop a deeper understanding of God and gain a sense of spiritual self through the Catholic faith as taught in the religious education classes, participation in school Masses, and involvement in service to the Community.
We offer a full comprehensive student experience designed for career and college readiness in mind as we prepare our students for a rigorous high school experience.
In addition, SHCS is implementing STEAM curriculum, focusing on agriculture, sciences, and technology.
Our Spanish language program is offered school wide, with a developmental approach from Kindergarten through 8th grade.
We welcome your interest and are able to accomodate visits, tours, and play days (for TK and Kindergarten) scheduled in advance.
