Traditions

School Motto: “...where quality and the individual count.”

The school motto is based on the Notre Dame Educational Cornerstones. In 1964, Sister Mary Ralph Fahey, first principal at La Reina wrote: “The young women of the Conejo need a high school of high standards and excellent curriculum, but most of all they need a quality education based on the Catholic faith and values and a school where the individual student is valued and respected.”

School Colors: Hunter green and gold

Alma Mater

Our La Reina High,
loved Alma Mater,
keep us true and loyal Regents all,
e’re upholding standards
bold and daring,
valiant students faithful to our call.
We will always praise, defend all that’s good, esteem the right and fair,
love and cherish ev’ry mem’ry
and be worthy of the name we bear.

Our La Reina days hold many mem’ries of the times
we spend together here.
They remind us also to look forward to each new, exciting, happy year.
And Our Lady, Queen of all,
is our model and our guide.
She’ll find us peace true and lasting
‘til in heaven with her we’ll all abide.


The Alma Mater was written by Sister Mary Josanne Furey, SND

Opening School Mass

On this day the entire school gathers for a special liturgy to officially open the school year.

After the liturgy, Student Council officers and members pledge their loyalty and support to the ideals of La Reina High School. The student body also makes a commitment to emulate the principles of La Reina.

Friendship Week

Friendship Week is held in honor of the patroness of La Reina High School, Mary, Queen of the Rosary. During the week, the school community celebrates the bond of friendship, love and respect that unites all La Reina students with their classmates and as a school. The week culminates with La Reina High Day which begins with a prayer service followed by class activities that promote school spirit and friendship.

Junior Ring Ceremony

The Junior Ring Ceremony celebrates the members of the Junior Class as they receive their class rings and are welcomed as upper class women.

Spirit Days

During "Spirit Days," the Student Council organizes activities that foster school and class spirit.

Mary's Day

In May, the school community honors Mary, the Mother of God, with the celebration of a special liturgy.

Renaissance Festival

A special day of Shakespeare and history, the Renaissance Festival provides an opportunity for students to perform scenes from classic Shakespeare and to fully participate in a Renaissance Faire experience.

Retreats - Grades 7-11

An integral part of La Reina High School is the retreat program aimed at enhancing the spirituality of our students. Retreats are led by student leaders under the guidance of the Director of Retreats. Student retreat leaders go through an application and training process to qualify as leaders. Each grade level (7-11) has a one day retreat during the school year held at a retreat center or at a church off campus.

KAIROS Retreat/Service Experience

The KAIROS retreat is a four-day off-campus experience. Students may choose to attend either in the fall or the spring. Students consider what God has gifted them to do in life and invites them to accept themselves as loved unconditionally by God. “KAIROS” is a Greek word meaning “special time”. During this “special time” each participant will be looking carefully at herself, her relationship with others and her relationahip with God. KAIROS attempts to evoke in its participants a dynamic, personalized sense of God. It is a beautiful gift for young people. Our past retreatants say that they were so affected by the experience that it enhanced their relationships with family, friends, and even themselves. During the KAIROS retreat days, each senior who is not on retreat participates in senior service experience projects.

St. Julie Day

The legacy of St. Julie Billiart, the spiritual foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame, offers the school community a model of deep faith and trust in the goodness of God.

Evening of Excellence

The Evening of Excellence is an annual awards dinner which recognizes students who have achieved excellence in a particular field. Pioneered by the late Mark Bihn in 1983, this event gives the school and local communities the opportunity to recognize these outstanding students. Incoming freshmen who have received Honors at Entrance are also recognized during the evening’s program. The dinner is hosted by the Parent Guild. All La Reina families are invited to attend.

Green and Gold Tea

Hosted by the Parent Guild, the Green and Gold Tea welcomes junior high students into high school. All incoming freshmen and their guests are invited to attend. The tea takes place in May.

Father/Daughter Bowling is sponsored each year by the Freshman Class. All La Reina students and their guests are invited to attend.

Mother/Daugher Event

Each year the Sophomore Class sponsors a mother/daughter event. Past events have included fashion shows, high teas, and luncheons. All La Reina students are invited to attend with their mothers or another adult guest.
