I am so pleased that you are interested in learning more about School of the Madeleine. School of the Madeleine (SOM) is a Catholic coeducational school, serving children from preschool to eighth grade. We have approximately 600 students from over 15 communities around the San Diego area. Our campus is located in the Bay Park area of San Diego and over-looks Mission Bay. School of the Madeleine is known for its strong academic programs, Christian values, and a dynamic, supportive parent community. We encourage the moral, physical, and social development of each child and strive to prepare him or her for life in a culturally diverse and economic complex world. As you explore our website, take a tour of our campus, and visit with me, you will begin to see what makes School of the Madeleine a truly special and extraordinary place.

On our web site, you will find information about our curriculum, our faculty, after-school programs, and all the many exciting activities that take place every day at School of the Madeleine. The best way to learn about our school is to visit. I invite you to attend one of our Open Houses or to arrange a time for a personal tour of the school to see first-hand the stimulating and engaging programs for our students. School of the Madeleine believes that each child is a unique creation of God and therefore, we have built in many options in each grade to meet the needs of our students. We believe that there is a special partnership between home and school that encourages a child to grow fully in their academic, social, and physical development.

Our admission process is designed to help you get to know our school better and to decide if SOM is the right fit for you. I look forward to welcoming you to School of the Madeleine. Please feel free to contact the school office at (619) 276-6545 to set up a tour and a visit.
