We have been preparing generations of young people to take their place as leaders of the community for over 40 years

Our school community is a family and like a family, we are committed to giving our students the spiritual, social and academic tools they will need to be productive members of the 21st-century society


Do you offer extended care? 2018-01-15T01:14:16+00:00

We do offer Extended Care both in the morning and after school.  Morning care begins at 7:00 AM. After school care is from dismissal to 6:00 PM.

Is financial aid available? 2018-01-15T01:13:34+00:00

There are several different options available.  We encourage new families to apply first for the BASIC Scholarship.  This is a privately funded program available to students throughout the Bay Area who are applying to a private school for the first time. In addition, families can also apply for the Archdiocesan Family Grant by completing and submitting the TADS form by April 15.  Information from the TADS form is also used to allocate our own school-funded assistance.

Where do your students generally attend high school? 2018-01-15T01:12:52+00:00

Generally, the majority of our students continue on to the Catholic high schools. We currently have graduates Junipero Serra (San Mateo), Notre Dame (Belmont), Mercy (San Francisco and Burlingame), St. Ignatius College Preparatory and Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory.  Over the last 5 years, we have had a 100% acceptance rate.

Do the students receive instruction in the Fine Arts? 2018-01-15T01:19:10+00:00

Students are introduced to various artists and their work through the Art In Action program. They learn about the artist and then try to create their own “masterpiece” by using some of the particular artist’s technique.  Student work is displayed in our local library and at our own spring art show. Formal music instruction begins in Third Grade. Also, in Grade 3 students may enroll in an after school band class.

Do you offer a foreign language? 2018-01-21T23:47:03+00:00

Our curriculum includes Mandarin in Grades K-8
