Plan your next event here in the heart of Silicon Valley, California. We welcome Non-Profit organizations, conferences and youth programs on our campus from mid-June to late August. Experience our beautiful Santa Clara campus, which contains stunning Mission Revival architecture similar to the historic Mission Santa Clara de Asis that the campus surrounds.

Our campus is conveniently located by San Jose Mineta Airport and the Cal Train Station. The Cal Train is the best way to get around the Bay Area with stops in downtown Palo Alto, Mountain View and San Francisco. Or rent a car and drive down the coast to Santa Cruz, Monterey, Carmel and Big Sur.
