Process

We are a PreK - 8th grade school where students, teachers, parents, parish and staff discover FAITH, seek KNOWLEDGE and experience COMMUNITY each and every day.
 
To join our vibrant community, we invite you to follow these steps.
STEP ONE: Tour the School
Open Houses offer unique opportunities to visit our campus, meet with teachers, talk to current families and get a sense of our community. We generally offer an Open House in the fall and another in January. Dates are posted as soon as they are scheduled.
Alternatively, request a tour online or call 408.268.0796 to schedule.
** Due to county restrictions, socially distanced, private tours are available on Wednesdays by appointment only. Please submit a request form and someone will return your call as soon as possible. **
