Our Mission

St. Brendan Parish School is committed to providing the highest quality Catholic education for each student. Combining deep-rooted traditions and current best practices, we are dedicated to educating the whole child so that he or she may be successful in the 21st century. We focus on teaching the child to be an active Christian, responsible individual, life-long learner, effective communicator, and problem solver.
St. Brendan Parish School is a co-educational Catholic grammar school (K through 8) in San Francisco with a total enrollment of 322 students. The school provides a rigorous academic curriculum designed to develop age-appropriate mastery of skills in elementary subjects. In addition to our core curriculum we offer instruction in Mandarin in kindergarten, Spanish in grades 1-8, technology, music, dance, and art.

By the eighth grade, our students' average standardized test scores are in the 86-96% range (i.e. in top 15% percent of the nation), and virtually all of our graduates have gone on to San Francisco’s best college preparatory high schools, including St. Ignatius, Sacred Heart Cathedral, Convent, Stuart Hall, Archbishop Riordan, Mercy, Lick Wilmerding, University, and Lowell.

St. Brendan alumni have continued their education at the finest universities in the country, including all of the UC campuses,  Annapolis, West Point, Columbia, Fordham, Georgetown, Cornell, Stanford, Harvard, and Yale.

St. Brendan  ParishSchool, mindful of its mission to be witness to the love of Christ for all, admits students of any race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin, and does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, and national and/or ethnic origin, age, sex, or disability in administration of educational policies, admissions policies, tuition assistance programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.

News & Announcements

St. Brendan School has embarked on a strategic planning process that we are calling Navigating Our Next Voyage – A Strategic Plan for St. Brendan Parish School. We are planning, today, to ensure that we continue to provide an outstanding Catholic educational experience to our current and all future students and their families. Our strategic planning efforts is guided by a small and capable Strategic Leadership Team that consists of representatives from our parish and school communities. However, everyone in the school and parish community will be invited to bring their voices to the process through an on-line strategic planning survey or select focus groups. It is our goal to have a 3-5 year strategic plan in place for the 2015-2016 school year.

Our Navigating Our Next Voyage Strategic Planning Survey is now open! You may access the survey through the link:

The survey will be open to the community though Sunday, March 29. We encourage everybody to share their ideas for the future of St. Brendan Parish School.
