Our Lady of Malibu School is committed to integrating elements of faith into the learning process. Recognizing parents as the primary educators of their children and the family as the heart of Catholic education, the faculty act as co-educators, supporting and enriching what families have begun with their children. The faculty work in partnership to foster an environment conducive to academic learning that supports the development of Catholic faith and values, and provides a strong foundation for further education.
We endeavor to educate the whole child, physically, emotionally, intellectually, morally, and spiritually. Each child is uniquely gifted and talented, and we strive to help our students identify their strengths and to discover ways of developing them.
We provide a safe and stimulating environment that meets the academic needs of each child. We prepare our students to be successful in college preparatory high schools and beyond. We offer a challenging curriculum with innovative programs, such as foreign language, the arts and music, sports, and technology. These create opportunities for all children to reach their full potential.
In addition to a strong academic curriculum, we provide opportunities for service, worship and prayer, and involvement in community life. Since we believe that service to others is a key to living a rich, satisfying life, we strive to provide age-appropriate service learning projects for all. We help students reach their full potential through relationships with others by actively fostering experiences of community.
We welcome children of all religious traditions. We believe that as these students learn about Catholic tradition and practices, they will be in a better position to understand, share and live their own religion.
