From Woodside Priory School

Woodside Priory School is a Catholic Benedictine, independent college preparatory school where we assist all students in creating meaningful and balanced lives, developing as lifelong learners and stewards, and productively serving a world in need of their gifts.

Balance begins with our location. Minutes from the heart of Silicon Valley, Priory is nestled in the picturesque hills of Portola Valley. We create balance in our academic rigor by exploring meaning, depth, and purpose. We encourage our community to explore interests beyond their comfort zones. Whether it is acting for the first time, assembling a new robot, striving for a personal best on the field, or merely continuing a discussion from class, we know our students are on a journey to discover the gifts that will give them a sense of purpose and fulfillment. Guided by the Benedictine values of spirituality, hospitality, integrity, individuality, and community, we are reminded daily to listen with the ear of our hearts.
