St. Bonaventure High School is owned by the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Los Angeles and is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges. The School is named in honor of the Patron of the San Buenaventura Mission and the City of Ventura. Currently over 600 students from all areas of Ventura County attend St. Bonaventure High School. Working in cooperation with parents, the administration, the faculty and staff are committed to drawing out the best in students. Mirrored also in the task are the words of James Francis Cardinal McIntyre at the dedication of St. Bonaventure High School on January 21, 1968:
"There is no perfection in academic achievements possible without recognizing the existence of God."
