Woodside Priory School (Priory)

Woodside Priory School is a co-educational, college preparatory school for grades 6-12-a small school by design. It is located on 60 wooded acres, about 30 minutes south of San Francisco, and north of San Jose/Silicon Valley - a safe, rural setting with close access to metropolitan advantages. Benedictine monks fleeing Communist repression in post-World War II Central Europe founded the campus in 1957. The monks shared a vision of blending the rigorous academic standards of Europe with the culture of freedom, tolerance and "can-do" spirit that they admired in America. Father Egon, one of the founders called his school "an American miracle." Woodside Priory School is an independent, Catholic, college preparatory school in the Benedictine tradition. Our mission is to assist students in becoming lifelong learners and stewards who will productively serve a world in need of their gifts.
