Anchored in faith, Saint Brendan Catholic School seeks to demonstrate the image and likeness of Christ in academics, spirituality and fellowship within and beyond our school, so that all may come to know Christ through us.

A Westlife newspaper article described St. Brendan church and school as “…new, fresh and different. It is situated in a picture book suburbia setting on a street surrounded by stately colonials, garden-type apartments and up-to-date condominium complexes.”

St. Brendan School offers a vibrant religious and quality educational program. Students are challenged to be their best selves every day. The dedicated, professional faculty and staff work as a cohesive and effective team that implements best practices on a daily basis. The learning environment is nurturing, challenging and engaging.  Particular areas of focus designed to prepare the students for the future include problem solving and communication skills.

Anchored in Faith
Our faith-based education navigates around religious instruction and spiritual formation. In addition to the religion curriculum, the students regularly participate in liturgies, the sacraments, Eucharistic Adoration, spiritual retreats and more. It is our practice that our Catholic faith is permeated throughout the school day in all that we do.
