School Description

Founded in 1889 by the California province of the Sisters of the Holy
Names of Jesus and Mary, Ramona Convent Secondary School is one of the
oldest operating schools in California. As a Catholic school, Ramona
provides a Christian environment in which young women develop academic
excellence, spiritual depth, personal integrity, and leadership skills
that will prepare them to meet the challenges of the twenty-first
century. We welcome a diverse student body, both ethnically and
economically, so that students can learn from each other and grow to
appreciate different cultures and traditions. We have created a
comprehensive curriculum that results in a well-rounded student who has
learned to think critically and ethically. We offer our students the
vital tools of education, self-assurance, leadership skills, and
community involvement so that, regardless of their economic background,
they will be able to succeed in their chosen career path and in the
world. Ramona is justifiably proud of our graduates as they pursue their
futures and make their contributions to the public and private sectors.
Among their numbers are teachers and social workers, as well as doctors,
nurses, lawyers, therapists, and heads of non-profit organizations.


Each year at graduation, the long lists of scholarships, grants, awards,
and honors-at-entrance testify to the continued academic excellence of
Ramona graduates.  In keeping with her tradition that now spans three
centuries, as well as the charism of the Sisters of the Holy Names,
Ramona continues to prepare young women for the responsibilities and
leadership required in today's competitive and complex world.
