WELCOME FROM OUR PRINCIPAL
Welcome to Mater Dei Juan Diego Academy!
Mater Dei Juan Diego Academy is the first Catholic school in San Diego to offer a 50/50 dual language Spanish/English immersion curriculum. All students receive 50% of their instruction in Spanish and the other 50% in English. Students have a core Spanish language teacher and a core English language teacher. The overall goal is to develop fully bilingual, biliterate and bicultural students. In addition, the curriculum is rooted in the STREAM education model (Science, Technology, Religion, Engineering, Arts and Math). The goal of this model is to educate the whole child while incorporating spirituality and fostering faith.
I invite you to come to our campus and meet us. You will experience a school community committed to academic excellence and innovation. Our rigorous curriculum helps students acquire the skills necessary to thrive in the 21st century. We ensure our students not only grow in their faith, but also empower them to put their faith into action as they develop a social justice consciousness. In addition, instruction is student-centered and teachers create a multilingual and multicultural learning environment that promotes equity and diversity.
I am honored and blessed to be part of the Mater Dei Juan Diego Academy family. I recognize both the power of bilingual education and the gift that Catholic education provides. Ever since I can remember, education has been both my calling and my passion. It is this passion and excitement that I hope to share with all of you throughout this coming school year and beyond.
Visit us and experience the energy, the excitement and the passion that a bilingual education provides. Join us as we educate the next generation of bilingual global leaders.
