The philosophy of Saint Charles School calls faculty and staff:

  • To provide a caring and nurturing environment where each child's special learning and individual needs are met

Philosophy

The philosophy of Saint Charles Borromeo School is founded on the belief that the Catholic school has a unique function in the community. Involved parents and dedicated and professionally prepared faculty along with support staff is necessary to foster and encourage high academic and moral standards. Recognizing that parents are the primary educators, Saint Charles Borromeo School supports and encourages parental responsibility in educating their children, especially in faith and in developing Christian social values. In cooperation with the parents, the faculty and staff endeavors to educate the whole child, emphasizing the dignity and spiritual development of each individual. The total instructional program, enhanced by religious education, is intended to stimulate intellectual, religious, psychological, social and physical growth, thus enabling our students to become responsible Catholics in a diverse society.

Accreditation and History

Saint Charles Borromeo School is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and meets the California Department of Education Standards. Saint Charles School was established as a parish school in 1939 with the Sister of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary (BVMs). The BVMs staffed the school for 43 years. Due to declining numbers in their order, the Sisters were unable to provide a principal for the school as the end of the 1981-1982 year. The BVMs withdrew entirely from Saint Charles School in March 1992. Since 1984, the school has been staffed by Benedictine Sisters and lay personnel. In 2000, a lay principal was hired and most of the faculty members were lay educators.
