Saint Monica Catholic High School is a parochial, co-educational, secondary school in Santa Monica, California, consisting of students in grades 9-12. It is located in the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Background[edit]

Saint Monica was established in 1899 by the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary.[3] The academy housed both an elementary school and a high school until 1930, when the elementary school became the "Saint Monica Parish Elementary School" and was transferred to its present site on Seventh Street. The school was sold in 1935, and Saint Monica High School was opened in 1939. The women's high school and the men's high schools were operated separately until the fall of 1968, when classroom instruction became co-ed.
