Academic Testing - Renaissance STAR

The Renaissance STAR test has been implemented by the Diocese of Monterey in mathematics and reading. Old Mission School administers this test three times a year. These short, computer adaptive tests provide teachers with learning data.

Data is then analyzed to provide instruction to determine what students already know and what they are ready to learn next, to monitor student growth, and to determine which students may need additional help. Star Assessments help teachers guide each student on his or her unique path to mastery. STAR provides teachers with immediate feedback and results in a variety of reports to be used for future instruction.


Extended-Care Programs

Old Mission and Nativity schools understand the time demands on working parents and offer Extended-Care programs at both the Nativity and Old Mission campuses.

ASA (After School Activities) is our after-school care program set up for working parents. We run between the hours of 2:30 pm and 5:00 pm on regular schedule days, and 12:30 - 5:00 pm on minimum days.

We currently charge a nominal fee of $5.00 per hour per child, with a minimum charge of one hour. Students simply sign in with our ASA instructor upon dismissal from class, and are signed out by their parent or guardian.
