Holy Names has provided quality education to young women in the bay area for over 140 years. We are a small Catholic college-preparatory school located in the Oakland Hills. Our diverse community nurtures spirituality, encourages artistic expression, and promotes justice, preparing the next generation for leadership and service. We embrace students of all religious traditions.

We hope you use this site as an opportunity to get to know Holy Names as a great place for young women to be themselves – to learn – to grow – to experience. At Holy Names our all-girls, supportive and diverse atmosphere encourages young women to recognize their potential and to appreciate the qualities that make each student unique.
