The Salesian College Preparatory (SCP) educational model serves to create a caring, loving, and nurturing environment where the young of all faiths can learn (school), grow in faith (church), feel a sense of belonging (home), and ultimately be happy (playground). The students are always at the center of all we do at Salesian, as “Education is a matter of the heart.” St. John Bosco
Robust Transportation Program
Our transportation program plays an important role in getting many of our students to and from school. Salesian offers van service throughout the East Bay including Berkeley, Oakland, Fairfield, Benicia, Vallejo, Hercules, Pinole, Concord, Antioch, and Pittsburg with new routes added annually as needed.
Diverse Student Body and Curriculum Offering
Salesian believes that understanding the past is imperative to our ability to live in the present and shape a more stable future. We strive to offer our students a comprehensive window into the past through connecting historically relevant issues with contemporary events while exploring our shared and individual experiences. Salesian has the pleasure and privilege of instructing a racially, ethnically, ideologically, and intellectually diverse collection of students, which provides opportunities to think more critically of the world around them and encourages them to build a more just society.
