New High School Girls Volleyball Coach for Fall 2018


I am pleased to announce our new high school girls volleyball coachKara Gittings. Ms. Gittings is a graduate of Vintage High School (Class of 2014) and has coached at both the junior high and high school levels at Blue Oak School, Vintage High School, and Napa High School.

Inquiries and Shadow Students


Due to the closure of St. Helena Catholic School, we are receiving a very large number of inquiries for next school year. Because of this, please note that the administrative and office staff will be busier than usual. If it takes a bit longer to receive an e-mail back, a phone call, or schedule a meeting, it is most likely due to this so uptick, so please bear with us.  Alongside inquiries, we are also anticipating a large volume of potential students spending “shadow” days in the classroom from now until the end of the school year. Thank you for your understanding.

Prayer Requests

Please continue to keep Chuck Rowles and his entire extended family in your prayers so that he will be ultimately cured of his stage-4 colon cancer, and that he can return to enjoying a full and active life with his family and friends. Chuck’s son, Chris, posts updates on the websites listed below. Please continue to pray the St. Peregrine Novena found below as well.
