Paraclete High School is located in the North end of Los Angeles County, California in the High Desert city of Lancaster. The only Catholic High School in the area, it has an enrollment of nearly 700 students who are challenged academically in order to prepare themselves for college.

Along with successful academic programs the Spirits are rich in athletic excellence, with Cross Country having a long history as part of that excellence. The programs were built by the hard work and dedication of student-athletes and coaches throughout the 53 years of the school’s existence since its founding in 1963.
