St. Brendan School opened its doors for the first time on September 7, 1965.
Principal Sister Mary Paula and her staff of eight lay teachers and four sisters of the order of St. Joseph, welcomed 502 students in grades one through six.
Grade seven was added the following year. 1967 saw the addition of the eighth grade with a total enrollment of 693 students being taught by 16 full-time teachers.
1967 also saw the beginning of the Parish School of Religion (PSR), then known as CCD. The Holy Family Program, which exists to assist young parishioners in the preparation for the sacrament of the Eucharist, began in 1969.
