About Saint Mary’s

Saint Mary’s is a Lasallian Catholic coeducational college preparatory high school located on a 13-acre site in North Berkeley and is fully accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the Western Catholic Education Association through 2014.

Saint Mary’s is notable for the deep and powerful influence of the Christian Brothers, their mission, and values, which ensure the quality and character of the school. Saint Mary’s has a long, well-respected educational tradition in the Bay Area as it celebrates its 145th year of education in the community and its 80th year on the North Berkeley campus.

Saint Mary’s College High School is firmly rooted in Catholic and Lasallian educational traditions. The educational program provides a strong foundational basis and challenges students to become agents of their own learning while developing important skills, strategies, and abilities that will prepare them for college and a personal commitment to lifelong learning.  At Saint Mary’s, students are encouraged to challenge themselves and their world by engaging in intellectual and moral inquiry in order to develop critical and independent thinking.
