ABOUT US: Principal’s page

Welcome to the St. Bonaventure High School website.  My association with the school spans almost thirty years, first as an instructor and coach, administrator and now Principal.  It is with great pride that I share with you this information about our school.

St. Bonaventure High School is a Catholic, college preparatory, co-educational high school. Established in 1963, the school has served the Ventura County area for over fifty years in virtually all aspects of education and community involvement.  In June, 2015 the Western Catholic Education (WCEA) will affirm St. Bonaventure’s excellence in Catholic education by granting the school a full six year accreditation term.

The Core Values of St. Bonaventure High School:  Living Faith, Engaging Hearts, Enlightening Minds, Achieving Excellence and Transforming Lives are at the center of everything we do at St. Bonaventure.  These values have inspired two generations of “Seraphs” to attend the finest universities, military academies, trade schools and colleges in the country and have gone on to transform lives through their various talents.

Students attend St. Bonaventure from every corner of Ventura County including Simi Valley, Thousand Oaks, Oxnard, Camarillo, Ojai and Ventura.  In the fall of 2014 we admitted thirteen International students from China and Germany whose goal is to graduate from St. Bonaventure High School and go on to an American University.

St. Bonaventure’s college preparatory curriculum fulfills requirements for acceptance into the University of California and California State University systems.  Ninety nine per cent of our graduates have gone on to pursue higher education with many accepted into some of the most prestigious public and private universities in the country.

Our faith based school of 550-600 students helps create a small family oriented atmosphere where students can practice their faith and have ample opportunities to experience all that high school life at St. Bonaventure High School has to offer.

God bless,
Mr. Marc Groff
