Student Life

Where You Belong.

Inspired by social justice teachings, Salesian College Preparatory is a diverse private, independent, Catholic co-educational high school located in the East Bay city of Richmond, California. We are committed to developing the individual potential of every student in our care through an educational system that is rooted in faith, and consistently excellent, innovative, and equitable. At Salesian, we meet the needs of the young through the oratory experiences of a home where you belong, a school that educates, a church that welcomes, and a playground where joy abounds.
