Principal’s Message

Welcome to SAINT CATHERINE PARISH SCHOOL and thank you for taking the time to visit our website to learn more about us. As a parish school with over sixty years in Laguna Beach, we are proud of our Catholic traditions and practices. I believe that one of the most important decisions you make as a parent is about the education of your children. At St. Catherine’s, we value that decision and the trust our parents put in us. It is an honor and blessing for me to serve as the school principal. I serve with our teachers who are devoted to the physical, intellectual and spiritual growth of our students. Each day, we review the commitment to work hard to educate our TK through eighth grade students and help them to become self-confident, compassionate and committed citizens who will meet their full potential. Christ is the center of all we do and we strive to lead our students into a joyful relationship with God. While our traditions and structure are a part of the fabric of our school community, so are twenty-first century educational innovations. Our goal is to educate our students in the ways of our Catholic Faith with a strong foundation that prepares them for the challenges they will face in high school and beyond. St. Catherine’s has so much to offer our students and families. We hope to share our many wonderful gifts with your families as well. I encourage you to take time to get to know us by touring our website, talking to friends and parents of our students, and by visiting our school. Blessings, Jennifer Maan, PhD Principal
