The philosophy of education at St. Odilia School provides a caring Christian environment in which Academic excellence and spiritual development occur simultaneously. Recognizing that parents are the primary educators and inspired by the teachings of Jesus Christ, our multicultural school strives to develop and implement programs conducive to an educational process whereby students grow spiritually, intellectually, psychologically, sociologically, psychologically, sociologically, physically, and aesthetically in a nurturing Christian atmosphere.
St. Odilia School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). This accreditation process is designed to strengthen schools in the delivery of quality educational programs. Accreditation is important to schools as it impacts students’ access to colleges and universities and career opportunities in a variety of ways. An effective WASC self-study review is a powerful tool for schools to improve the quality of education and more effectively serve staff and students.
