About Us

Continuing Christ’s mission in the world calls us to live in the spirit of the beatitudes with generous and courageous love.”
-Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet (Founded St. Catherine of Siena School in 1949)

Welcome to St. Catherine of Siena, a Preschool through Eighth Grade coeducational Catholic school located in downtown Martinez, California. We are a ministry of St. Catherine’s Parish and A Lumen Christi Academy. St. Catherine of Siena School was established in Martinez, CA in 1949 by the Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet. Thousands of students have come through our halls, and served our community over the decades. We offer caring and Christ-centered education to all children from Preschool through Eighth grade, as well as before and after school daycare. We adhere to the highest standards of accreditation and certification for academic and parochial education, well above the curriculum requirements by the State.

Our challenging curriculum is aligned with Diocesan and California Common Core State Standards, which includes daily Religion instruction, and weekly classes in Art, Music (including an annual musical performance), Technology, and Physical Education. Our students participate in the CYO athletic programs. Our small classes allow for individualized learning programs and one-on-one time with credentialed teachers.

We truly believe that it takes a community to raise a child, and in partnership we strive to honor all students and provide the growth of the whole person while they are in our care. We invite you to come take a tour and experience the wonderful things happening at St. Catherine of Siena. Please call or email jgriswold@csdo.org to schedule your tour today.
