Academics & Admissions
Preparing our students for life
The School of the Madeleine empowers our students with the skills they need to succeed in high school, college, and in life. We offer much more than just a strong academic program and rigorous curriculum. We also instill in our students a strong sense of community, an empathy for others, an acumen for critical thinking, and a love of learning that lasts a lifetime.
The Madeleine curriculum combines a mix of creativity, critical thinking and communication skills to best prepare our students for high school and beyond. Our graduates attend top local high schools such as St. Mary’s, Bishop O’Dowd, College Preparatory School, the IB program at Berkeley High, honors programs at El Cerrito High, and others.
Our programs include Art in Action, Shakespeare, Geography Bee, Science Fair, and STEAM curriculum,
Young Authors Fair, Walk Thru History, and more. Extracurricular activities include TechTeam, Drama, Band, Sports, Dance, Art, and more.
About two-thirds of the student body participates in CYO sports programs, including basketball, volleyball and track.
