The Mission of Bosco Tech

Guided by the Salesian educational system of St. John Bosco, Don Bosco Technical Institute is a Catholic high school, offering unique project-based STEM programs and a rigorous college preparatory curriculum to academically qualified young men of all religious, ethnic and socioeconomic backgrounds. As a Christian faith community, the school prepares and equips students to be lifelong learners, who are dedicated men of faith and integrity, committed to leading successful lives of distinguished service and social justice.

Philosophy Statement

As a Catholic school, Don Bosco Technical Institute is a faith community whose ultimate goal is to assist students in establishing and strengthening their relationship with God, in this life and for the next. While open to students of all faiths, we present Jesus as the perfect model to follow: Christ as our Teacher, Redeemer and Good Shepherd. This Christ-centered focus guides our instruction, inspires our celebration of the Church’s liturgical life, and motivates our commitment to service and social justice.

As a Salesian school, Don Bosco Technical Institute provides a supportive and caring family environment modeling itself after St. John Bosco’s Oratory. Like Don Bosco, we believe that “school is life being lived” and “education is a sacred means for the transformation of human beings.” We give our students an experience of church, where they find meaning; school, where they learn life skills; playground, where they celebrate life; and home, where they feel welcomed. Applying St. John Bosco’s Preventive System of Education, we accompany our students using: Reason — by fostering relationships of mutual respect; Religion — by recognizing each one’s dignity and responsibility to discern God’s call; and Loving Kindness — by emphasizing gentleness, patience, joy and optimism.

As a STEM-focused, college-preparatory high school, Don Bosco Technical Institute provides its students the knowledge and skills they need to thrive. Through our unique project-based curriculum, we offer opportunities for our students to gain command of current and emerging technologies, while benefiting from career exposures unavailable in traditional high schools. Bosco Tech provides a rigorous academic program, including honors and Advanced Placement courses, to prepare students for success in higher education. Relying upon the collaboration of parents and teachers in providing a student-centered education, we promote healthy living, foster the development of cooperative skills, and encourage a spirit of community involvement and leadership that our students carry into life. As a learning community, we strive to cultivate graduates who are lifelong learners and critical thinkers, imbued with a sense of faith, social justice and civic responsibility.

“Where the rolling hills of San Gabriel,
Crown the old Camino Real.
Golden dreams and hopes abounding
Guide our way with kindly light.
Bosco Tech, today we hail thee,
E’er thy memories treasured shall be.”
