Serving a diverse ethnic, cultural and religious population in the city of Oakland, our mission is to educate children in the Catholic faith and nurture their minds, bodies, and souls, inspiring them to live the Gospel of Jesus Christ, achieve their highest academic and creative potential, and actively serve and enrich the community.
St. Jarlath School strives to provide an educational environment that develops the whole human person in relationship to God and others. While acknowledging that parents are the primary educators of their children, we strive to form an active partnership between home and school. The faculty, parish staff, and parents work together to motivate our students to develop their full human and spiritual potential. Our aim is that all St. Jarlath students will become increasingly responsible for their own faith life, learning, behavior and future.
