Quick Facts

Resurrection School is one of 27 Catholic elementary schools within the Diocese of San Jose. We are located in Sunnyvale, California, in the heart of Silicon Valley close to major employers such as Apple, LinkedIn, Facebook and Google. The school draws from a multi-ethnic mix of students, providing an opportunity for a Catholic education to the children of our parish and the community at large.

We offer before and after-school extended care. Our curriculum supports Transitional Kindergarten (4 year olds) through eighth grade. 

Resurrection has received the highest accreditation award possible from the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC): 6 years, no review for the last 4 consecutive accreditation cycles dating back to 1991. Once again in 2016, we were granted the maximum 6 year status.
