Attention: Notice regarding Visits to Priory Campus

Unfortunately, we are unable to welcome prospective students and visitors to campus at this time. To protect those who call Priory home, including our monastic community, we ask for your understanding.

We are currently evaluating the possibility of hosting prospective students and their families to campus this fall and will have more information by September 1.

The Admissions Team is still available–we invite you to contact us by email, and we'll schedule a time to speak with you. We are happy to help and answer your questions!

Please stay safe and be well.

Warmest regards,
The Priory Admissions Team

Our Campus

The place we call home sits on 50 lush acres. The vistas our founders once enjoyed are not so different today: the golden California hills rolling that surround us are still dotted by tall pine trees. Watching the sunset over the hills that separate us from the Pacific Ocean is a treat that our monks and boarding students enjoy daily at dinner. Surrounded by the quiet town of Portola Valley, we are minutes away from the innovative communities and technology hubs that give our valley its name.
 
To help you visualize yourself as a student, we invite prospective families to visit us through official events, including Open Houses and Student Visits. For current applicants, we provide more information about the availability of these events, including how to sign-up, in our Ravenna application portal.
 
Our campus hosts exhibitions from local and national artists at Kriewall-Hael Gallery, watch our student artists perform in our Rothrock Performance Hall, celebrate daily mass at our Chapel, or compete athletically on our fields and athletic facilities. Whether you are on campus for an event hosted by the Admission Office, we welcome you to imagine yourself a student as you wander through the halls and pathways.
 
Official tours for current applicants are offered during the school year. Please visit our online application portal for information on how to sign-up. Kindly note due to limited availability, we are only able to offer tours to families currently applying for admission. Be sure to experience our interactive map by clicking on our interactive button in the sidebar!
