Holy Names is a College Prep School Like No Other


We pair the challenge of a college preparatory curriculum with a supportive environment and faculty relationships that ensure student success, connection, and confidence. In our intimate and open-minded community, students develop strong voices, deep compassion, and the skills and confidence they need to have a powerful impact on the world.  We believe young women can choose their own trajectory free of constraints based on gender, gender identity, race, culture, or economic circumstances.


At Holy Names, Students Thrive

Our small class environment ensures that every student is known and understood, allowing teachers to meet students where they are and provide the challenge, the support, and the positive reinforcement they need to succeed.

We foster a sense of sisterhood and camaraderie that leads to constructive problem solving and students that cheer each other on as they take on new challenges, from sports or drama to robotics or student government. Our graduates understand that whatever path they choose to take, they are confident that they belong and can be successful in that space.
We’re proud to be the most diverse all-girls school in the Bay Area, and one of the most diverse private, Catholic schools in the area. Our diversity includes the full socio-economic spectrum, race, and a multitude of cultures that reflect our local community. We’re proud of our open-minded and welcoming faculty, staff, and students.
