Established in 1901, Santa Clara High School exists to provide its students with a Catholic education. The mission of Santa Clara High School is that all students, will receive an education guided, inspired, and permeated by the Catholic Faith, embodied in a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum. Upon graduation our students will have developed into active participants in their faith, academic, and social communities.
As part of the teaching ministry of the Roman Catholic Church, Santa Clara High School exists to continue the mission of Christ, striving to “teach as Jesus taught.”
Our intention is that each student experience spiritual, academic and social growth through guidance and instruction by all members of the campus community where parents maintain their role as primary educators.
Our goal, though a process rooted both in the Gospel and in solid scholarship, is to engage in the collaborative work of forming, informing, and transforming our students into well-balanced Christian young adults. Our focus is to prepare our students academically to succeed in college, spiritually to actively engage in the life of their faith community, and socially to understand their role as Christians in a modern society, engaging in the creative process that is fundamental to our culture.
