Mission Statement

Crespi Carmelite High School, established in Encino, California in 1959, serves male high school age students who wish to pursue a Carmelite college preparatory, Christian education in a Catholic environment. Dedicated to excellence and responding to the challenges of education in our time, we offer a holistic model of education emphasizing the spiritual, intellectual, moral, physical, and social development of our students.

In the spirit of the Gospel and the Carmelite tradition, the Crespi Community engages the student in three interlocking dimensions: Community, Prayer, and Justice. We seek to build a community that listens and bears witness to the divine plan through the promotion of justice in the service of the whole person.

Crespi Carmelite is open to male students of all ethnic, religious and educational backgrounds. For applications or tours, contact our Admissions Office at (818) 654-1329, or email admissions@crespi.org.
Every child’s intelligence and abilities are far more complex than any grading scale. Therefore, variety and balance are required for a holistic education. We have a multitude of ways that our young men can cultivate and refine their talents, ways that nurture a sense of wonder and a passion for exploration. With multiple paths of learning, our educators understand and respond to diverse learning styles and the ever-evolving needs of our students. Whether through artistic pursuits or student activities, we have something for everyone.
