Students wear a uniform daily. The purpose of the uniform code is to focus on the inner qualities of each student rather than on the exterior additions. Its design is meant to alleviate the cost of clothing for parents, and to eliminate the status factor of costly labels for the children.


10 classrooms each equipped with AV equipment, projectors in every class, six with interactive SMARTboards, and nine document cameras; ten Apple TVs and Chromebooks in Grade 3-8, iPads in K-2, a library; a multi-purpose facility which serves as gym and assembly space; a state of the art kitchen; a play structure, blacktop courts, and outdoor lunch tables. As part of the larger education ministry of the Catholic Church, students also regularly worship at St. Basil Church.

Standardized Testing

Students participate in ACT/Aspire Summative standardized testing. We also participate in STAR Assesments four times a year which is used for diagnostic purposes to assist teachers in gauging progress and enhancing curriculum. Students in the Diocese of Sacramento consistently score above the national percentiles in all grades for all subjects (Reading, Language, Math, Social Studies, and Science). This distinguishes Catholic schools and demonstrates how instruction focuses on comprehensive learning and retention.
