On June 17, Archbishop of Los Angeles Jose Gomez celebrated St. Monica Academy’s baccalaureate Mass and graduation at the school’s Montrose campus. After celebrating Mass with six other priests, Archbishop Gomez gave the commencement address and conferred diplomas upon St. Monica Academy’s eighth grade and senior graduates. In his address, the Archbishop urged the graduates to pray unceasingly to become saints. The ceremony closed with the graduates singing the words of their alma mater: “Crusaders, fight the good fight throughout your future lives. Proclaim the truth with courage knowing Christ is at your side.”
Due to a steady growth in enrollment, St. Monica moved to the campus of Holy Redeemer Parish in Montrose in the summer of 2015. The newly renovated school site features a spacious elementary school building, new classrooms for the high school, a refurbished locker arcade, new landscaping, computer lab, science lab, library, and expansive outdoor space.
St. Monica Academy is located at 2361 Del Mar Road in Montrose and serves grades one through 12.
