• Back to School Night On Campus!
and more!


“It would be impossible to describe the joy of our hearts as we took our first view of San Francisco.”
— Sister Frances McEnnis, 1852

Our 170 year journey is one of faith and transformation from the humble beginnings of the pioneering Daughters of Charity who established our first Catholic school in San Francisco in 1852, to their partnership with the Christian Brothers educating young men here since 1874.

We are continually blessed by the efforts of our Holy Founders and all the pioneers who came before us. We express our profound gratitude to the Daughters of Charity and the Christian Brothers who have dedicated their lives to serving our students and communities, and who continue to inspire us today.

The SHC Walkathon is an annual student-led fundraiser that builds up to a 10K walk and picnic celebration. Since 1989, over 11,000 students have raised more than $4.75 million!

Student Fundraising
We ask that all students create their own personal fundraising page to ask family and friends for support while tracking their progress. Each student has a goal of raising at least $250. Visit for detailed instructions on how to set up a personal fundraising webpage. It’s quick, easy and convenient!

Cash or check donations can be mailed to the school, dropped off at the main office or brought in by your student.

August 29 Early Bird Deadline
& Student Prizes

Fun prizes, including modified dress passes, await students who reach their $250 goal by the Early Bird deadline of Monday, August 29 before 12 pm. Students who surpass their goal will qualify for additional prizes.
