Learning at La Reina

What will instruction look like at La Reina?

La Reina is committed to providing a rigorous and meaningful education for our students.  It is our belief and mission that through our curriculum, students gain confidence in themselves and develop compassion for others, and engage in transformative leadership during and after their education at La Reina.  Our school has been committed to this mission since 1964 and will continue to support our students under any circumstances.

La Reina has been continually growing and changing with the times to provide the best education possible for our students.  We educate the whole person at La Reina, and create a culture that is welcoming, educational and inclusive.  Our nurturing Catholic environment of educational excellence is focused on helping young women of all faiths develop into moral and self-confident leaders who work for the transformation of individuals and society.

La Reina is striving to be dynamic and agile in our approach to how we address the constraints placed upon educational institutions by Covid-19.  Please know that the health and safety of our community remains our foremost priority. We recognize that there is not a one size fits all solution for every member of the La Reina community and our goal is to provide families with options.  In response to this reality, we have made available two learning experiences, On-Campus Instruction and La Reina at Home.
