MISSION AND HISTORY
La Reina High School & Middle School is a Catholic college preparatory school for young women in the tradition, vision, and educational principles of the Sisters of Notre Dame.
La Reina provides a nurturing, Catholic environment of educational excellence, focused on helping young women develop into moral and self-confident leaders, who work for the transformation of individuals and society.
Students are given opportunities to foster their relationship with God, to grow intellectually, to develop their individual gifts, and to be catalysts for the promotion of justice locally, nationally and globally.
La Reina Traditions
La Reina's program 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.”
Today, La Reina is proud to offer a challenging academic curriculum in a Catholic environment that celebrates the individual talents of our students. Click on the links below to learn more about how La Reina's many unique traditions nurture young women's academic, personal, and spiritual growth.
