The Mission Experience

San Gabriel Mission High School is more than a school, we are a family. From the moment you choose Mission you are welcomed into a community of families, faculty and staff and young women who care. 
We offer the following programs to help your growth and success:

  • SMART Orientation Team
    Support Motivation Advice Respect Trust SMART Mission Statement All SMART Team members (both adult and student teams) are supporting, motivating, giving advice, respecting, and trusting YOU. We are a collaborative team that works on all aspects of the program (orientation, academic, social, meetings, and fundraising). There is no I in team and therefore we all work together and “SMART” each other out! SMART leaders (consists of Juniors and Seniors) are in charge of:
    1. Orientation for the freshmen class (they come a few days before school starts for training)
    2. Academic check ins with the freshmen throughout the year during advisement period
    3. Social gatherings (movie nights, ice cream, field trips, etc.) with the freshmen throughout the year

  • Big Sister/Little Sister Program
    Mission girls embrace their motto “Come as strangers, leave as sisters.”  Each freshman is assigned a big sister in the senior class.  The older students serve as their little sister’s mentor and help them in their high school journey.

  • Annual Spiritual Retreat for grades 9-12 (culminated by KAIROS)
    Our spiritual retreats are a time to reflect and grow. Learning at SGMHS is much more than academics, we offer opportunities for to learn about yourself. Kairos is an important and unforgettable retreat for the seniors. This retreat is in the fall and is a four- day long retreat away from campus. Kairos is the most in- depth retreat for our students because it is touches different areas of their life before they end their high school journey and prepare for their next chapter.

  • Play Day
    We have a variety of events through the year to make your high school experience a memorable time to cherish for the rest of your life. This is a day in which students show their class and school spirit. A theme is chosen by the Associated Student Body (ASB) and the classes compete in games and other activities to help raise the spirit of the school community.  Each class uses their theme to decorate a corner of the Auditorium from top to bottom.   This is also the culmination of spirit points for the year and the winning class is announced and earns the spirit stick, as well as, bragging rights! This is just one of the many traditions SGMHS has to offer.
