Nurturing students through each developmental stage.

In the Mariner tradition, Saint Monica Preparatory believes that students are best educated through the exploration of the world around them. We prepare our students to chart their own course in life. Our TK-12 teachers, coaches, counselors and leaders form longstanding connections with students who are seen, accepted, known by name and given time and direction to help foster their growth academically, spiritually and social/emotionally. At each stage of development, we guide students toward self-discovery, spiritual growth and academic curiosity anchored in our core values of character and community.




At Saint Monica Preparatory, each student is encouraged to explore the world with open hearts and curious minds. Beautifully nestled in the Santa Monica bay, a few blocks from the ocean, Saint Monica has been dedicated to the education of the whole person for over 92 years. Our experienced teaching staff and dynamic programs provide wide-ranging opportunities. Students are challenged by rigorous academic standards anchored in character and spiritual formation.

Saint Monica Preparatory is a diverse and inclusive TK-12 community that promotes joyful exploration, develops critical thinkers and emphasizes character and spiritual development. We value the individual and nurture the aptitudes and talents of every student while supporting their spiritual, social and emotional development.

What our families value most is the powerful sense of community, our emphasis on the spiritual and the opportunity for students to be seen and known. We graduate well-adjusted and well-prepared students who can navigate their futures with competence guided by a strong moral compass. 

We invite you to visit our campus and see first hand all that Saint Monica has to offer. Our goal is to make your experience in choosing a school a positive one for you and your family. We welcome your phone calls and emails as you discern the best place for your child.

Go Mariners!
