Julie Guevara, Principal

Julie Guevara

Ms. Julie Guevara was named Principal of Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School in April 2020. Since joining the SJND Family in 2006, Ms. Guevara has served as Women's Basketball Head Coach, Admissions Director, and Assistant Principal of Student Life. Most recently, Ms. Guevara served as interim principal of SJND from July 2019 to April 2020. 

Ms. Guevara has a Master of Arts in Education from the University of San Francisco. A product of Catholic education herself, she is an unwavering advocate for Catholic education. She believes in working closely with her pastor, faculty and staff, and the leadership team in fostering the SJND mission of "developing confident, open-minded and effective leaders who are ready to live joyful lives of faith, scholarship, and service." 

Ms. Guevara says: "The student experience is at the heart of who we are. I will ensure our students have opportunities to thrive in their faith life, academic endeavors and interests. I look forward to engaging with our parents, alumni and community supporters. It is our charism of the Holy Family and our mission of being a faith-filled, diverse and welcoming community that led me to SJND many years ago and it is for these same reasons I am grateful each day I am able to serve all students, teachers, parents, alumni and friends of Saint Joseph Notre Dame High School."
