Our Mission

Romero Academies partners with families to form future saints by developing the intellect, forming the character, and engaging the faith of each student.

Our Vision

Romero Academies forms future saints and scholars by partnering with families to develop the intellect, form the heart, and engage the faith of each student. Inspired by the life of St. Oscar Romero, Romero Academies graduates will develop the virtue, knowledge, and academic skills necessary to thrive in the city’s most selective college prep high schools. Romero graduates aspire not to have more, but to be more.

Our Approach

The Romero Academy model is based on a belief that success is about more than academics. It is about character, faith formation, partnership, and how the content is taught. We will achieve its goal of helping students develop the virtue, knowledge, and academic skills necessary to thrive in a selective college preparatory high school and college by focusing on five key areas:

Personalized learning.

Each child will work in teacher-led small groups of 5-10 students while also learning at their own pace using personalized technology tools.

Character building education.

We explicitly model and teach the virtues of courage, wisdom, self-control, and justice to prepare our students for both college and heaven.

Catholic Values.

Christ is at the center of everything we do.

High expectations.

We expect our students to “be more.” We focus on love and joy mixed with high expectations for academic work and behavior so our graduates will excel in high school, college, and beyond.


We believe that parents are the first educators of their children. Our school is always open to parents and we seek their partnership in helping their children excel.
