Employer Description
Founded in 1957, Woodside Priory is a co-educational, college preparatory, Catholic school originally founded by Benedictine monks. A small boarding and day school by design, Priory currently serves approximately 400 students in grades 6-12. Of the student body, 20% of upper school students are boarding on campus with the student to staff ratio at 7:1. Priory is set on a scenic 60-acre campus only 35 miles from San Francisco and four miles from Stanford University. The Priory educational experience is centered around the Benedictine values of individuality, community, integrity, hospitality, and spirituality and is supported by a talented and dedicated faculty. Students have the opportunity to play 13 different sports and the school employs a “no cut” policy to encourage students to try new sports. Roughly, 62 faculty members teach a comprehensive curriculum offering over 20 AP courses with an average class size of 13 students.
Diversity Mission Statement
Priory actively seeks to advance the equity and diversity of our community through professional development, admissions, hiring and retention. We believe that diversity does not inherently lead to inclusion, but must be built through structures which uphold the social contract of those whom we admit or hire. Integrity to this social contract means a commitment to mutuality in relationships, equitable power distribution, and care for the dignity of each person. Through vigilance of our own culture and practices, regular examination of our systemic biases, and growth in our cultural proficiency, Priory strives for an educational and working experience where all can be seen, known, and loved.
