Verbum Dei High School will be having its Annual Mardi Gras Awards Dinner to celebrate and support Scholarships for students on Thursday, March10, 2011, at 6:00 P.M., at the California Club in Downtown Los Angeles.

The school provides a student-centered, college preparatory curriculum that promotes an honest exchange of ideas and opportunities for leadership and service. The academic program is designed so students will be college-ready by their senior year, developing in them the desire for post-secondary education. For the last three years, 100% of Verbum Dei graduating seniors have been accepted into college.
