Who We Are

St. Mary Magdalen School 
Landmark of Faith, Character and Academic Excellence
 
Philosophy
St. Mary Magdalen School provides excellence in academics along with formation in Gospel values. Like our hilltop Chapel, the school remains a shining tribute to God, and an educational landmark serving the families of the greater Camarillo area since 1954. In partnership with our parents, we are committed to the education of the whole child, academically, spiritually, socially, emotionally, artistically, and physically.
 
Our Catholic faith permeates a comprehensive academic program that promotes critical thinking in a global society. Inspired by the mission and ministry of Jesus, we provide an education that emphasizes personal responsibility, acceptance of diversity, the importance of compassion, and respect for ourselves and others.
 
Vision
Saint Mary Magdalen School will inspire in each student a love of learning and social responsibility consistent with our Catholic identity. We will provide strong academics enhanced by technology with an emphasis on critical thinking. Coupled with a fundamental moral compass directing each to serve, we will prepare students for the challenges of a global society.
 
Mission
Through differentiated instruction we provide an education designed to individually challenge and motivate all students to reach their full potential. Our rigorous, comprehensive standards-based course of study promotes critical thinking and prepares students to be leaders in a global society. In partnership with parents, the mission of Saint Mary Magdalen’s TK-8 program is to serve the Camarillo community by providing an exemplary Catholic education.
 
Accreditation
