Justin-Siena, Napa CA
Inspiring Faith, Scholarship, and Bravery
Justin-Siena is a Catholic high school in the Lasallian Tradition called to provide education excellence in a loving, Christ-centered community that prepares students to serve and to lead in an ever-changing world.
Justin-Siena High School was founded nearly fifty years ago when a need for a Catholic college preparatory education arose in the Napa Valley. In 1966, Justin High School for boys (sponsored by the De La Salle Christian Brothers) and Siena High School for girls (sponsored by the Dominican Sisters of San Rafael) were founded.
In 1972, the schools merged and became co-educational under the name of Justin-Siena High School. The De La Salle Christian Brothers became the sole sponsor of Justin-Siena in June 2006. With such a rich heritage, Justin-Siena bears a distinction of educational excellence that ensures the school is always moving forward as our motto suggests—Sempre Avanti. We take pride in our current students and graduates who continue to serve and lead in their communities.
De La Salle Christian Brothers
The Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools (also known as the De La Salle Christian Brothers) is a Roman Catholic teaching order founded in France in 1680 by John Baptist de La Salle, a Catholic priest. Originally serving the purpose of educating the young, with a particular concern to those of modest or limited means, the De La Salle Christian Brothers currently sponsor approximately 1,000 institutions more than 80 countries around the world. The Founder, St. John Baptist de La Salle, is regarded today as the patron saint of all teachers. It is from this rich legacy lasting more than 330 years that we celebrate our Lasallian traditions everyday, throughout our campus, and in all that we do.
Inspiring Faith: At Justin-Siena, we invite students to explore their relationship with God. Our religious studies programs, accompanied by a wide array of faith formation activities, provide opportunities for students to learn how to nurture their faith while at the same time responding as Christians to the needs of others.
Inspiring Scholarship: As a college preparatory school, our curriculum is designed for students to be competitive for college placement, while becoming young men and women inspired to put their faith into action, to apply their knowledge for the benefit of others, and to use their gifts and talents to promote the common good in our world.
Inspiring Bravery: Vibrant co-curricular programs enhance student life by engaging young people in unique activities including spiritual development, service, athletics, and the arts while developing and exercising personal leadership skills and rising to challenges that instill confidence and determination.
