San Juan Diego Catholic High School

Tel: (512)804-1935
Grades: 8-12 | 157 students
San Juan Diego Catholic High School opened in 2002 after Archbishop Gregory Aymond recognized the need for Catholic, college, preparatory education in Austin.
Students participate in the corporate internship program (CIP) where they work entry-level positions in the corporate world to earn part of their tuition.
Students intern at some of Austin`s top employers including Seton Healthcare Family, Dell, IBM, St. Edward`s University and Graves Dougherty Hearon and Moody.
Through the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the 21st Century Grant (CCLC), SJDCHS students are able to participate in a number of extra-curricular activities including athletics, after-school clubs, and tutoring. In addition, parents are also able to participate in programs such as conditioning club.
As a community of faith, we believe that a Catholic, college preparatory education, combined with a corporate internship program (CIP), creates spiritual, intellectual, and professional growth for the students we serve.
We value our students, their families, and the rich culture they bring to our school, and are committed to shaping the young hearts and minds of our future leaders.

School Notes

  • Shortly after arriving in Austin in June 2000, Bishop Gregory Aymond sought to advance the Church's prophetic mission by increasing the number of Catholic school opportunities in Central Texas. Citing the Church's "preferential option for the poor," he sought to make quality, Catholic, college-prepatory education available to young people who otherwise might not have access to it. In August 2002, only weeks after the canonization of St. Juan Diego, the indigenous man to whom Our Lady of Guadalupe appeared, Bishop Aymond opened San Juan Diego Catholic High School. San Juan Diego is modeled after Cristo Rey Jesuit High School in Chicago. Because of its academic excellence and innovative Corporate Work Study Program, San Juan Diego Catholic High School is popularly known as "The School That Works!"
