Elementary School

Catholic elementary schools in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles are welcoming, vibrant, and diverse learning communities where students explore and develop their God-given potential and forge lasting friendships.

We educate approximately 43,000 students each year in grades TK through eighth across the three counties within our Archdiocese.

While each school has its own culture and charism, all of our schools are faith-based environments where Catholic values and traditions are taught and practiced.

Academic learning is integrated with enrichment activities and character development, helping students grow intellectually, socially, spiritually, and physically.

We pride ourselves in offering a variety of innovative elementary school models, including our STEM Network, Dual Language Immersion schools, and our Microschools Network.

These differentiated learning environments provide unique opportunities for families to select the school that best suits their child.

All Catholic schools within the Archdiocese are fully accredited through the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Our students graduate well‑prepared with a solid academic foundation and the socio-emotional skills needed for high school, college, and beyond.
