Blessed Sacrament School, Hollywood, Calif.

We are a Catholic school within the Jesuit tradition. Our newly renovated building is just one outward sign of the commitment the parish and school community have made to the education of students as we enter the 2015-2016 school year.

At Blessed Sacrament School, we actively live out our school philosophy, “We believe in the Jesuit educational tradition of helping children become men and women for others and that these values strengthen the spirit, community, and child.” We do this by providing an academically rich, faith-filled learning environment. We respect, affirm, and value each other. We see each activity, challenge and day as an opportunity to learn about God, others, and ourselves. Through our school program, we encourage all students to develop a true sense of social justice, peace, compassion, and respect for all of God’s creation. As we do this, we maintain high academic and behavioral standards, preparing students for life-long learning, leadership, and service.
