Why Choose St. Euphrasia?

Are you looking for a faith filled community for your child’s education?  WE EDUCATE SAINTS AND SCHOLARS:  Weekly School Mass is celebrated on Fridays at 8:15. Students are responsible for various roles of the Mass (ushers, lectors, choir) and this time is a cherished tradition of our Faith.  The students in Grades 6-8 are introduced to our parish youth ministry programs through the STEMS (St. Euphrasia Middle School) Connexions Youth Ministry Program.  Our parish Youth Ministry Director is Ms. Jazmin Lugo (who is an alumni of our school).

Are you looking for a science technology emphasis for your child?   WE PREPARE LEARNERS FOR THE 21ST CENTURY:  St. Euphrasia proudly implements a STREAM curriculum which integrates Science, Technology, Religion/Reading, Engineering, Arts/Athletics and Math/Music.  Our school is currently fielding two robotics teams (a 5th/6th grade team and a 7th/8th grade team).  We compete in the First Lego League competitions yearly.  During the 2015-16 year, our team placed 15th out of 300 teams!  At a recent competition this past October, our team scored 1st place.  The team is sponsored and mentored by Boeing, Corp.  We are one of the few elementary schools in our local area that can claim a corporate sponsorship through Boeing and we are grateful for their generosity and coach mentors.  Students also have instruction in music, visual art and theater arts.  We want every student to “share their gifts and talents”.

Do you want to know more about a student’s academic journey?  WE PREPARE LEARNERS FOR A COLLEGE UNIVERSITY PATH:  We have a 100% acceptance rate into our area Catholic high schools (our graduates are accepted at Bishop Alemany, Notre Dame, Providence, St. Francis, Loyola, Chaminade, Louisville, Crespi, Flintridge Sacred Heart, Immaculate Mary, Sierra Canyon and Harvard Westlake).  At our local public charter high school, Granada Charter High School, the Class of 2012 (graduating high school seniors in 2016) celebrated 99% of their class receiving academic honors awards at the graduation ceremony.  We are proud of our academic excellence!  St. Euphrasia alumni have attended UCLA, USC, Stanford, Georgetown, Brown, MIT, John Hopkins, NYU, UCSD, UC Irvine, Texas A & M, UC Davis, UC Irvine, and many more.  The foundation for a 4 year university path started in their elementary school years.

Are you curious about “service learning”?  WE TEACH STUDENTS TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN OUR WORLD:  Service learning is integral to our student’s daily life and faith journey. All students (TK-8) take part in annual projects like the Rancho San Antonio Christmas Giving project, Together We Are Able program (through Shane’s Inspiration), educating 11 family members of our seminarian Joachim (who is from Nigeria), and connections with Good Shepherd Shelter and MEND.  Students in Gr. 6-8 look forward to being a “buddy” to a student in TK, K, 1st or 2nd grade, helping our youngest students to feel safe and connected to their older peers at our school.

Do you want to know about our school enrichment and Knights Club (before and after school care) programs?  WE WANT EVERY STUDENT TO BE PART OF OUR COMMUNITY BY SHARING THEIR GOD-GIVEN GIFTS AND TALENTS:  After school sports programs include flag football, basketball, volleyball, softball, soccer, swimming and cheer for students in Gr. 5-8.  Classes are offered in Art/Drawing. Hip Hop, Spanish, Math Enrichment (Sylvan), Robotics, Tennis, and Tumbling/Cheer.  Students in Gr. 6-8 can try out for the Academic Junior High Decathlon Team (AJHD).

Do you remember your elementary school journey and traditions?  WE BUILD COMMUNITY AND RESPONSIBILITY: We celebrate many annual events, building community and continuing our 50+ year legacy. These include Harvest Festival, Christmas Program, Auction & Casino Night, Grandparents Day, Lip Sync, Class Field Trips, Las Posadas, May Crowning, Sports Banquets, Honor Roll Assemblies, First Friday Student of the Month Awards, Jog-A-Thon, Jump/Hoops for Heart and many more!
