Our Lady Of Malibu School

  • Our Lady of Malibu School is committed to integrating elements of faith into the learning process.
  • Recognizing parents as the primary educators of their children and the family as the heart of Catholic education, the faculty act as co-educators, supporting and enriching what families have begun with their children.
  • The faculty work in partnership to foster an environment conducive to academic learning that supports the development of Catholic faith and values, and provides a strong foundation for further education.
  • We endeavor to educate the whole child, physically, emotionally, intellectually, morally, and spiritually.
  • Each child is uniquely gifted and talented, and we strive to help our students identify their strengths and to discover ways of developing them.
  • We provide a safe and stimulating environment that meets the academic needs of each child.
  • We prepare our students to be successful in college preparatory high schools and beyond.
  • We offer a challenging curriculum with innovative programs, such as foreign language, the arts and music, sports, and technology.
  • These create opportunities for all children to reach their full potential.
  • In addition to a strong academic curriculum, we provide opportunities for service, worship and prayer, and involvement in community life.
  • Since we believe that service to others is a key to living a rich, satisfying life, we strive to provide age-appropriate service learning projects for all.
  • We help students reach their full potential through relationships with others by actively fostering experiences of community.
  • We welcome children of all religious traditions. We believe that as these students learn about Catholic tradition and practices, they will be in a better position to understand, share and live their own religion.
