Welcome Message

Welcome to St. Patrick - St. Vincent Catholic High School (SPSV) where all are welcome! I love the sign above our amphitheater from John 13:34 that reminds us to “Love one another.” The spirit of community is strong on our campus.

Our students come from over 30 different schools and live in four Bay Area counties.  They come from Catholic schools, public schools, private schools, charter schools, and some were homeschooled.  Most begin as freshmen, but several transfer as older students.  Regardless of where they come from, they quickly become Bruins.

Our faculty and staff are a diverse crowd of talented individuals.  Seventeen are alumni, 22 are parents of current or former students, and 12 have worked here 20+ years. They care about our students and work creatively to educate the whole person.

Our parents support the school through their service hours and the Parent Association for Community Engagement (PACE). They cheer for our students at athletic events, plays, and concerts.

Our alumni represent three different eras coming from three different schools: St. Vincent’s, St. Patrick’s, and St. Patrick - St. Vincent Catholic High School. We gather on the last Saturday of July for the All School Reunion Picnic.

While every person on our campus is a unique individual, we come together to form the Bruin community where everyone is valued, respected, and welcome!

Nora Rodgers, Head of School
