Congratulations to the incoming Holy Names High School Class of 2024!
As the only all-girls Catholic high school to currently serve Alameda County, we are fortunate to have this distinction as it has paved the way for our graduates to be fearless in their future academic and professional endeavors. We look forward to this exciting and inspiring year.
Per orders from the Alameda County Health Department and recommendations from the State of California, Holy Names will be implementing a policy of distance learning through the coming weeks, and at least until the shelter in place order has been lifted. Making a positive contribution to the health and well being of our school community, as well as our community at large, is paramount to the Holy Names mission. It is imperative that all of us embrace these changes to curtail the spread of COVID-19, especially to those amongst us who are most vulnerable.
