La Reina is the result of a vision that the Sisters of Notre Dame had more than forty years ago when they founded the school. In the spirit of the Gospel and according to the educational traditions of St. Julie Billiart, spiritual foundress of the Sisters of Notre Dame, La Reina provides a Catholic education in which each young woman may discover, develop and share the unique gifts God has given her.

At La Reina, students are given opportunities to grow spiritually, to achieve academic excellence, to develop a global perspective, and to contribute to the community.  The school consistently produces award-winning speech teams and scholarship winners, as well as Tri-Valley League and Ventura County Mock Trial champions.  All students are involved in some type of activity in the community, volunteering in hospitals, religious education programs, and in other community agencies. La Reina graduates are young women with meaningful values, schooled in the tradition of Christian service, willing and able to pursue excellence in reaching their goals.

To bring together outstanding students, their parents and community leaders, the La Reina High School Parent Guild hosts an Evening of Excellence.  Students who receive awards have achieved excellence in a specialized field.   Pioneered by the late Mark Bihn in 1982, this event gives the school and local communities the opportunity to recognize these outstanding students.

All students, parents, alumnae and friends of La Reina are cordially invited to attend.  Seating is limited and the RSVP deadline is Friday, May 6.
