Challenging Academics
Faculty and staff at Saint Brigid School focus on providing a rigorous, faith-centered 21st century education. Children learn under high expectations with clear guidance and support that builds a community of motivated learners. All students at Saint Brigid receive a rigorous Spanish language curriculum and usually advance to second level and honors Spanish classes upon leaving Saint Brigid. All of our students receiving developing cognitive and analytical skills through our intensive Music program. Students receive an education that meets their particular needs. Teachers and staff challenge them, while offering the necessary support to create confident, eager learners. Saint Brigid students typically advance to rigorous college-prep high schools in San Francisco, including Sacred Heart Cathedral Preparatory, Stuart Hall High School, Saint Ignatius College Preparatory, University High School, and Lowell High School. We regularly hear from alumni, parents, and faculty that our students are more than prepared to study at top private high schools.

Faith-Centered Life
Saint Brigid is proud of its Catholic identity while it respects and welcomes students and families of all faiths. Students participate in Mass monthly, and celebrate the seasons of the Church throughout the year. The community emphasizes and celebrates the moral and spiritual development of students alongside academic growth.

It is the mission of Saint Brigid to open the doors of Catholic education to families of all income levels. Not only is this fair and just, it promotes the richness and diversity we value so highly in our school.

Cultural Diversity
Saint Brigid has an exceptionally diverse community — ethnically, culturally, and socio-economically which enriches the learning and social environment for our families. Our students therefore, learn to value and respect differences within themselves, their friends, their family and community.
