Over 90 Years of Quality Catholic Education

Holy Name of Jesus School (HNOJ) is a Catholic elementary school, Transitional Kindergarten (4 years old) to 8th grade, located in the city of Los Angeles. Since 1924, we have provided effective, faith-based education to thousands of children.

For 90 years, we have helped families realize their dreams of an educational foundation for their children; a preparation for life that guides children through elementary school and provides a pathway to high school, college,
a successful career and a better life.

Our success is based on five critical elements:

  • maintaining Catholic religious values
  • promoting academic excellence through ensuring high school enrollment for all our 8th grade graduates
  • expanding our curriculum to meet the needs of each individual child
  • upholding the highest  standards of education
  • meeting the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and Western Catholic Educational Association (WCEA) accreditation requirements.

Our belief is true and our practices are clear. There is a leader in every child and we are dedicated to bringing out the best in yours. Our approach consists of:

  • faith-based teachings
  • curriculum that meets Common Core state standards
  • online blended learning programs
  • family oriented
  • a safe learning environment
  • online accelerated reading comprehension program
  • instrumental and theoretical music education
  • formal art program
  • free and reduced meals
  • before and after school care
  • an innovative P.E. program
  • scholarships

No child is ever turned away for lack of ability to pay.  Holy Name of Jesus School educates the mind and spirit of every child.
