  • Bishop John J. 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.
  • Bishop John J. Snyder High School opened its doors on August 14, 2002 to seventy-four ninth graders.
  • In 2006, we graduated our first class of seniors. Currently, we have 482 students in grades 9-12.
  • Curriculum, in the purest sense, is the combination of all the experiences a student has while attending school.
