Principal’s Corner

Welcome! Madonna del Sasso School, set in the heart of Salinas, has been educating students for over 55 years. We minister to students in Preschool through 8th grade. We enthusiastically forward a mission to motivate, instruct and nurture children in the beliefs, practices and values of the Catholic community, integrated with academic excellence, physical development and leadership skills within a safe and spiritual environment.

Madonna del Sasso School has consecutively received the highest level of accreditation from the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC). Together with parents, the primary educators, and teachers as facilitators of learning, we prepare students to become involved, responsible and contributing members of the Church and society. Dedicated faculty and staff provide a rigorous academic program with core curriculum that integrates Common Core Standards while nurturing the potential of every child. Our core curriculum consists of Religion, Reading, Language Arts, Math, Science, and Social Studies. Our students also receive instruction in computer technology, Spanish, physical education, sports, liturgical music, instrumental music and art.

We appreciate the benefits of our strong parental involvement and recognize it as a contributing factor in the success of our students. The spiritual formation of each student is integrated across the curriculum as well as across school life and extends to community service activities that truly make a difference in our community.

We look forward to the opportunity of your visit to our campus and recognize what a difference a Catholic School education can make to your child. We welcome inquiries and are currently accepting applications for the 2016-2017 school year.

Blessings,
Mr. Angel Rivera, Principal
