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.
SCHOOL CODE OF ETHICS: “THE CRESPI WAY”
At Crespi Carmelite High School, pursuing an ethical and moral life is a key component in the process of becoming a Crespi Man. As faculty, staff, parents, students, and board members, we all call ourselves Celts. As such, we each bear a responsibility for not only modeling persistence, grit, and high standards, but also for building Crespi’s reputation as an academic institution.
Holding ourselves to a high standard of ethical behavior while also looking out for each other is the Crespi Way. This means we nurture an environment of mutual respect.
Celts are leaders who do not harass, harm, or take advantage of members of the community at large. Celts are role models, even when no one is watching. Celts also understand that circumventing the learning process leads to negative long-term consequences and are therefore persistent in their efforts to reach their goals. Celts understand that when their backs are up against the wall, and are presented with a challenging opportunity, that it is that moment that true growth happens. Essentially, striving for our best is the Crespi Way.
