The Mission
The Mater Dei High School Ring of Honor debuted in May 2001 at the 50th Anniversary Golden Gala. The Ring of Honor aims to bring the entire Mater Dei community together to celebrate our school, give thanks, and recognize people who have made Mater Dei such a great place to learn and develop. It is the dedication and commitment of each and every member of our extended Monarch family that creates the traditional appeal of Mater Dei High School.


The Ring of Honor seeks to recognize individuals who have achieved local, state, national, or international recognition through their church, school, community, or professional life. The honoree must display commendable character and dedication to the values and mission of Mater Dei High School. Inductees are not required to be Mater Dei alumni. All members of the Mater Dei community will have nomination privileges.


We will call for nominations for 2018 in the spring.   Please call the Office of Advancement at (714) 850-9534 or for more information.


Ring of Honor inductees are recognized each spring at the Annual Ring of Honor/Founders Circle/Legacy Society Dinner.
