Saint Mary's College of California

Saint Mary's College of California is fundamentally designed to transform the way in which students understand themselves and engage with the world. We encourage you to embrace complexity, contemplate your place and purpose in the world, and undertake a searching examination of self, spirit and society.

We're a Catholic, Lasallian, liberal arts college, and we're rooted in the life and work of Saint John Baptist de la Salle, founder of the Christian Brothers and the patron saint of teachers. Our traditions and heritage inform everything we do. At Saint Mary's you'll discover your capacity for transformative action as well as profound reflection.
