  • St Barbara Catholic School is a Transitional Kindergarten through 8th Grade Catholic Parish School.
  • St. Barbara Catholic School exists to support and complement the parents in their responsibility to be the primary educators of their children.
  • The overall mission of St. Barbara Catholic School is to teach the Gospel, and to model Jesus Christ.
  • Its primary goals are to assist students to grow into the fullness of life in Jesus, to be members of the community of believers, and to teach the redeeming message of God's love.
  • The focus, therefore, is on the development of the whole person: physically, intellectually, morally, psychologically, socially, and spiritually.
  • Recognizing that a Catholic School should be available to all who desire this educational environment, the Catholic schools in the Diocese of Orange strive to accept everyone for whom an appropriate program can be designed and implemented.
