Welcome from our Principal

Welcome to Saint Hilary School: a professional learning community embracing academic excellence, community spirit, and spiritual strength.

Founded in 1963 by the Sisters of the Holy Faith, Saint Hilary School is a unique blend of a traditional and progressive practice. Our whole-child approach to education prepares our well-rounded and intelligent graduates of character for success in the Bay Area's most rigorous college preparatory high schools, and in life.

Led by a team of professional and dedicated teachers, our academic program is challenging and engaging. We endeavor to present our students with the best possible academic opportunities. This approach resulted in our school being selected into the Challenge Success program at Stanford University's School of Education, being identified as an Apple Distinguished School, and celebrating over 50 years of excellence in Catholic education.

In addition to Religion, Language Arts, Social Studies, Math, and Science our curriculum features Physical Education, Spanish, Music, and Fine Arts. We've integrated Smartboards, laptops, and iPads into our repertoire of teaching tools, providing opportunities for individualized instruction from grades K through 8 thus allowing us to provide a 21st Century Catholic Education. Our investment in the latest technology is increasing the opportunities for student-driven projects and differentiated learning.

The excellence of our academic program is enhanced by the active participation of our families - our partners in education. This is an active and supportive community. Parent volunteers, school and parish-wide community-building events, and an Ambassador Program for new families that promotes trust and camaraderie within our community that allows us to educate students at the highest level.

As a Catholic school, we believe that the religious and spiritual development of the child is indispensable in attaining a genuine whole-child education. By teaching about the Catholic Faith, both Catholics and non-Catholics learn a common set of values, beliefs, and expectations.

We are a community of learners who proudly embrace all of the gifts God has given us.

We look forward to welcoming you onto our campus. God bless and go Tigers!

- Dr. Marie Bordeleau
