About Saint Mary’s College of California Saint Mary’s is a private, coeducational college located in Moraga, California, United States, a small suburban community about 10 miles east of Oakland, California with wonderful landscape and impressive buildings. It is affiliated with the Roman Catholic Church and administered by the De La Salle Christian Brothers. St. Mary’s College began in 1863 as a diocesan college for boys established by Most Rev. Joseph Alemany, OP, Archbishop of San Francisco, California. Unhappy with the archdiocese’s operation of the college, Archbishop Alemany applied for assistance from Rome and Saint Mary’s College was handed over to the De La Salle Christian Brothers in 1868. The nickname of sports teams at Saint Mary’s is the Gaels, which had been changed from the "Saints" in the late 1920s. Almost all of the NCAA Division I varsity teams compete in the West Coast Conference.
Please visit the Saint Mary’s website at www.stmarys-ca.edu to learn more about the campus and location.
