St. Brendan High School is a co-educational private Roman Catholic high school in the Westchester census-designated place in Miami-Dade County, Florida. The school is part of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Miami.
St. Brendan High School was originally St. John Vianney Minor Seminary High School, which opened in 1959 to accept students who were interested in studying for the priesthood. When enrollment declined, the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Miami, decided to convert the school into a co-educational high school. They changed its name to St. Brendan High School and it opened at the start of the 1975 school year.
It is part of the Archdiocese of Miami. The school is primarily committed to serving the educational needs of the Catholic population of the southwest section of Miami. In 1975, 346 students were enrolled in the ninth and tenth grades. By 1977, 870 students were enrolled in the ninth, tenth, eleventh, and twelfth grades.
