Students Mirror Diversity of East Bay
Salesian students are talented, “roll up your sleeves”, get-involved sort of people. They join clubs (37 and counting), and when desired they form new groups. They are newspaper editors, class officers, artists and elite athletes. They step out of their comfort zone and take part in all that the school has to offer.
From the debate team to Habitat for Humanity, from drama to the Student Leadership and Ministry Club, from salsa to sports - students are leaders on campus and in the community, and every day they rise to the challenge to fulfill their potential.

Without Salesian, I wouldn’t be where I am now in terms of faith, performance, and leadership. I was able to build up my capabilities on the things that I am most passionate about.

“What I love about Salesian is that we all come from different backgrounds, but learning with a diverse group of people beside me, I can push myself to be my best self.”
Salesian's 1:1 college counselor program encouraged me to enroll in AP (Advanced Placement) and Honors courses when possible. This ideology that Salesian instilled in me, pushed me to work harder and aim higher. Without Salesian continuously challenging me to be greater, I would not be attending the #1 HBCU, Howard University.
