Mission Statement

Saint Catherine of Siena School is a parish PreK-8 elementary school based on teachings of Jesus Christ in the Roman Catholic tradition. We serve the children of Martinez, California and the surrounding communities.

Each member of the school community answers the call to nurture each child-spirit, mind, and body in safe caring, family atmosphere. We provide a challenging and comprehensive curriculum, which adresses a variety of learning styles and prepares each child for the future.

Catholic Schools in the Diocese of Oakland educate children in the Catholic faith and nurture their minds, bodies, and souls, inspiring them to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ, achieve their highest academic and creative potential, and actively serve and enrich the community.


NOW Enrolling Transitional Kindergarten

ST. CATHERINE (Pre and T-K) now enrolling. Our Transitional Kindergarten program uses a modified Kindergarten curriculum that is age appropriate. Students whose 5th birthday falls after the September 1st Kindergarten acceptance date qualifies for Transitional Kindergarten. Our program focuses on nurturing the child as a whole to foster independence, creativity, and a love for learning. Our curriculum integrates arts and crafts, religion, fine and gross motor skills, sensory and problem solving, music, science, cooking, dance and movement. We provide every child in our care the opportunity to create and learn in a caring environment. We teach concepts that include: number and letter recognition, colors, shapes, writing name, and skills such as patterns, sequencing, and opposites. Our teachers are all fully qualified in Early Childhood Education and our classes are small. We currently are offering preschool and T-K with an optional extended day, and provide a nutritional snack daily in the morning and afternoon. We take children 2 yrs. 9 months to entering Kindergarten who are potty trained.

Additionally, we are also accepting applications for K-8 at
