Top Six Benefits of a St. Cecilia Education
• Experience More Than School.
Let your roots grow down into Him, and let your lives be built on Him. Then your faith will grow strong in the truth you were taught, and you will overflow with thankfulness. (Colossians 2:7)
St. Cecilia School is more than school, tests and textbooks! At St. Cecilia School, the first treasure we hold and share enthusiastically with your child is our love for Jesus Christ. This is a serious commitment that your family and our school take together so that each child will grow in a personal, dynamic, and committed relationship with the Lord. Our goal is for your child to not only know God but to love Him and become a man or woman of the Gospel.
• Build Character.
Whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable- if anything is excellent or praiseworthy- think about such things. (Philippians 4:8)
A faith that is not lived is empty! At St. Cecilia School, your child will build character and grow in virtue. Goodness is something that needs to be practiced! Our commitment to you is that your child will learn through a dynamic Catholic faith and moral life, how to know right from wrong, make wise decisions, and grow into that person who will build up the kingdom of Christ and make your home and the world a better place.
• Learn More Here.
Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—His good, pleasing and perfect will. (Romans 12:2)
St. Cecilia School’s faculty are born teachers, blessed with the God-given ability, passion and patience to teach and reach diverse children of virtually all learning styles. Along with our superior faculty, St. Cecilia School offers your child a place where our Art Program is second to none. Students learn confidence and how to develop their talents through our Music Program under the direction of a former Broadway singer and parishioner. Our Spanish Program gives your child an advantage in an Orange County that is diversifying quickly. Older students mentor younger ones; students lead prayer assemblies; each child is taught to work as a team and how to be independent.
• Thrive in High School.
Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it. (Proverbs 22:6)
St. Cecilia School’s balanced, challenging curriculum and continual emphasis on personal responsibility arms students with the fundamental knowledge, self-discipline and good study habits to academically thrive in the high school of their choice. We continually receive praise from our local high schools regarding St. Cecilia School’s graduates.
• Find Your Voice.
He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.” (Mark 16:15)
St. Cecilia School’s focus on reading, writing, and public speaking enables your child to communicate effectively at a high level, empowering them to confidently find their voice, clearly share ideas, and persuasively inform and influence the thinking and actions of others. An educated and Christian witness is an essential contribution that we give to the larger society.
• Feel at Home.
For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I with them. (Matthew 18:20)
From the moment you step through the doors of St. Cecilia School, you sense something different – a blend of optimism and togetherness, where people remember your name and are glad to see you. Students learn from a well crafted curriculum, their teachers, their fellow students, and the parish priests how to love Christ in a way that will anchor them successfully for the future. That is our commitment to you and your child.
