St. Joseph's College was a seminary of the Archdiocese of San Francisco at Mountain View, California opened in September 1924.[1] It was also referred to as St. Joseph's Seminary. It was run by the Sulpician Fathers.[2]

Its creation was supervised by Archbishop Edward J. Hanna.[3] Hanna ordered the purchase of 700 acres and the seminary was considered "the jewel of his accomplishments."[3]

The seminary buildings were severely damaged by the Loma Prieta earthquake on 17 October 1989. The seminary was permanently closed on June 30, 1991.[1] The site is now part of Rancho San Antonio County Park.
