Snyder High School is a co-educational, college preparatory high school operating in the Diocese of St. Augustine.
Our mission of "competence, conscience and compassion" resonates throughout our school's daily life from the strong academic curriculum to the fine arts and athletic programs.

Snyder High School opened its doors on August 14, 2002 to seventy-four ninth graders.
In 2006, we graduated our first class of seniors.

Curriculum, in the purest sense, is the combination of all the experiences a student has while attending school.
In that light, the curriculum is about an approach to learning, teaching, and building a community.
It is the means, so to speak, by which students reach the end.
That end, for Bishop John J.
Snyder High School students, is a college preparatory education coupled with the formation of the three main tenets of our mission: competence, conscience, and compassion.
