St. Aloysius is located in a predominately Latino area of Los Angeles that faces major challenges and needs a strong Catholic presence. Many of our parents are Spanish speaking only and a majority of our preschool students are English as a second language learners. We strive to offer our students the same opportunities as students in more affluent schools.
Since 2008, St. Aloysius School has been fortunate enough to receive much assistance from various foundations and organizations, such as the Shea Foundation, Hannon Foundation, Riordan Foundation, Hilton Foundation, Outdoor Funstore, National Textbook Services and the Doheny Foundation. Through the generosity of these organizations, the school now has a computer lab with 35 new computers, a Smart Board, 2 new playgrounds, a new library and a preschool classroom. During the summer of 2011 the school was completely renovated with new floors, white boards, tack boards, air conditioner/heaters, built-in cabinets, a new bathroom, new paint and new asphalt. Furthermore, St. Aloysius School has been invited by the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to take part in their C3 Technology Pilot and Catholic School Advantage program, which will update the school’s use of technology, as well as promote our school to the surrounding community.
