St. Philomena Catholic School is part of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles and serves the diverse population within the greater Carson area. Under the leadership of the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles, the dedicated staff integrates spiritual and moral values into the curriculum within a safe, structured and family-like learning environment. The school is fully accredited by both State and Catholic agencies (WASC and WCEA), and the rigorous academic expectations exceed the norms established by State Standards. We are dedicated to the growth and development of our students by helping them become responsible and participating members of the Catholic Church and of society. Our goal is to nurture within the students a love for God and others, as well as challenge them to achieve their greatest potential and, one day, enter into our ultimate goal – Heaven.
