When Christian Brothers High School first opened its doors to students in 1876, the City of Sacramento was just 27 years old and the State of California just 26. Among its graduates have been war heroes, police chiefs, physicians, actors, authors, researchers, mayors, judges, professional athletes, teachers, entrepreneurs, Brothers, priests and nuns. Inextricably woven into the fabric of the City of Sacramento and countless communities nationwide, are the talents, compassion and tenacity of CB alumni.
