Welcome to St. Bede Catholic School

Welcome to St. Bede Catholic School’s website! We are located in Hayward, California and are part of the Diocese of Oakland, California. We are a K-8 Catholic school, which emphasizes both Catholic education and academic excellence. Our curriculum features religion, reading, language arts, math, science, social studies, music, art, integrated technology, physical education, and field trips. Our extracurricular activities include the opportunity to participate in student government, boys’ and girls’ athletics, science club, Tae Kwon Do classes, and the opportunity to join the MUSE band.

Today, the City of Hayward is known as the “Heart of the Bay,” not only for its central location but also for its accepting and caring environment. You will find that St. Bede’s is no different. We are a school built on a firm Catholic foundation as well as traditions. We are a school full of diversity, yet we exquisitely remain a true family in every sense of the word. We welcome you to visit our campus and find out for yourself.
 


A Message from our Principal

Principal Jocelyn Pierre-AntoineDear St. Bede Catholic School Family and Future Friends,

With much joy, I am blessed to partner with Father Seamus Farrell and our committed faculty and staff to provide our families with a high quality Catholic education that cultivates spiritual, academic, social, and physical growth in all students.  

Fifty-one years ago, our founders built St. Bede Catholic School as a response to the growing needs of the parish community. In the fall of 1964, the Sisters of the Holy Names of Jesus and Mary appointed Sister Gemma Fisher as the pioneer principal of our elementary school for grades 1-4. For 26 years, the Holy Names Sisters worked in partnership with lay colleagues to provide educational opportunities that nurtured the development of whole child: body, mind, and spirit. Today the charism of the Holy Names Sisters lives on in our school’s mission to educate children to become disciples of Jesus and encourage students of all learning styles to reach their full potential.  

St. Bede Catholic School offers a rich K-8 learning environment that values each individual, appreciates the diversity of all people, and inspires students to respond to the needs of the world. Through our participation in Silicon Valley Math Initiative’s Coaching Institute, our teachers are implementing engaging critical thinking strategies that support the Common Core Standards. We are proud to implement our one-to-one laptop program that empowers our students to be innovative thinkers and collaborative learners. In the spirit of continual improvement, our professional development time centers on strengthening our math and writing practices. This year we also adopted new social studies curriculum in the junior high and supplemental history resources for the primary and upper grades to ensure that our educational program is current and relevant.

Beyond the curriculum, St. Bede Catholic School has dedicated teachers and staff who respect and honor the uniqueness of each child and work in partnership with parents to nurture the holistic development of our students. Our faith-filled school welcomes new members to our community with joy and provides a family atmosphere of love and care for one another.  

Please take a moment to learn more about us through our website or come visit our school. We invite you all to share the good news of St. Bede Catholic School.

With Peace and Gratitude,

Jocelyn Pierre-Antoine
