with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
Santa Margarita Catholic High School’s Options Program offers an inclusive Catholic education to high school students with developmental and intellectual disabilities. Providing families with the opportunity to be a part of the school’s nurturing, faith-based community, students interact socially and academically with peers and staff. The program is open to students 14-18 years old with an academic proficiency of second grade or above. Students work toward a certificate of completion (not a high school diploma).
Santa Margarita Catholic High School also offers the Auxiliary Studies Program for those looking for a diploma track program. The ASP program facilitates student engagement, success and independence within a college preparatory curriculum through responsive and comprehensive academic support services.
Understanding that all are loved, all have gifts and that life can be lived joyfully in many ways
is a gift that ALL of our students deserve to receive.
