Curriculum

We follow the California State and Archdiocese of LA curriculum standards and have led the way for adoption of a standards-based report card system in the Archdiocese of LA Department of Catholic Schools. All schools, whether archdiocesan, parish, or those owned and operated by religious orders, institutes, or governing boards, are required to meet the following Catholic identity standards from the accrediting agency for archdiocesan elementary schools, the Western Catholic Educational Association:

  • The school has a mission statement and philosophy statement that indicates the integration of the Catholic faith in all aspects of the school’s life.
  • The school provides regular opportunities for the school community to experience prayer and the sacraments.
  • The school has a religion curriculum and instruction that is faithful to Catholic Church teachings and meets the requirements as set forth by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops.
  • The local ordinary approves those who teach the Catholic faith (Canon 805) and there is ongoing formation for catechetical and instructional competence.
  • The school maintains an active partnership with parents/guardians whose fundamental concern is the spiritual and academic education of their children (Canon 796).
  • The school has a service-oriented outreach to the Church and civic community after the example of Jesus Christ, who said, “I have given you an example so that you may copy what I have done to you” (Jn 13:15).
  • The school uses signs, sacramentals, traditions, and rituals of the Catholic Church.
  • All school personnel are actively engaged in bringing the good news of Jesus into the total educational experience.​

    St. Euphrasia school has a variety of after school programs that have been established to meet the need for additional enrichment beyond the school day. Classes are updated on a regular basis to meet the demand and the interests of the families served. Feedback from parents, staff, and students is ongoing and helps to make solid decisions about which after school programs are chosen.

    St. Euphrasia school offers a variety of extra-curricular activities that provide students with enrichment, intellectual development, service opportunities, creative expression, tutoring, athletics and recreation.
