Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. At Paraclete High School, we are dedicated to preparing young men and women to be successful in any future they may choose.
Academics is the primary reason many parents and students choose Paraclete High School. All of the classes at Paraclete are college prep level and are designed to create a smooth transition for our students as they go onto the college of their choice. Currently, Paraclete has alumni attending over 60 colleges across the nation including some of the most prestigious like Yale, Harvard, Pepperdine, Johns Hopkins and Purdue. Students are able to attend these universities due to the rigorous curriculum and preparation for college exams. Our students continue to score well above the national average on the SAT, ACT and numerous Advance Placement tests.
Paraclete offers students many opportunities to grow outside of the classroom. We compete in 14 varsity sports where we have won 175 league championships and 16 CIF titles including three in the past two years. Currently 49% of our students are involved in at least one sport, with many playing multiple sports throughout the year.
Students who may not be interested in sports have the opportunity to join numerous clubs on campus that operate through the Associated Student Body (ASB). ASB is the driving force behind many activities on campus including dances, rallies, lunch and break time events. ASB is not only a great opportunity for students to get involved on campus but it is a chance for students to exhibit leadership skills.
Paraclete High School is accredited by the Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) and is co-accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC).
WCEA accredits Catholic elementary and secondary schools in nine western states (26 Dioceses) and the US Territory of Guam. WCEA co-accredits and is in partnership with three Regional agencies (WASC, NAAS, NCA CASI) and two private agencies (CAIS and HAIS). WCEA began in 1957 in San Francisco and has a long and successful history of assisting school improvement through the accreditation process.
